Gardens of the World

  • Nelson
  • Parks & Gardens

Gardens of the World brings together native and exotic plants from all around the globe in a single unique and tranquil setting. Each ‘zone’ of the garden represents a different continent or gardening style, with beautifully manicured environments to represent New Zealand, Australia, Africa, America, the Orient and Europe.

A formal rose garden, herbaceous area, herbarium, white garden, amphitheatre, water garden and rhododendron walk add to the appeal of the 2.4 hectare garden.

Visitors to the garden can move amongst the displays, from the Outback to the Orient, opt for a guided tour, or relax by the lakeside with a picnic as birds sing from the trees above. A great way to experience the world without needing to travel too far.

Entry costs $5 per adult, gold coin for children.
