Fodor's Review

In the hills overlooking downtown is a concentration of splendidly varied terrain. Woodland gardens under native and exotic trees fill the valleys, water-loving plants line a pond and mountain streams, and lawns spread over flatter sections with beds of bright seasonal bulbs and annuals. The lovely Lady Norwood Rose Garden is in the northeast part of the garden. If you don't want to walk the hill up, the Kelburn Cable Car can take you. Or catch the No. 12 bus (direction: Karori) from Lambton Quay to the main (Glenmore Street) entrance.
