Eden Garden is a magical microcosm of the art and craft of gardening and has been described as Auckland's best-kept garden secret.
In 1964, a far-thinking band of volunteers began their efforts to transform an abandoned quarry burrowed into the scoria rock of the extinct volcano. Today, this garden paradise features one of the largest collections of camellias in the Southern Hemisphere. A café is open all daily.
Discover this wonderfully peaceful sanctuary in the heart of Auckland. Wander through a 5.5 acre award-winning garden on the side of Mt Eden. Take a day or an hour to explore its many plant collections including perennials, vireyas, camellias, bromeliads and native New Zealand plants. There's always something in bloom. Enjoy the waterfalls, rock formations, resident native birds and fabulous city and harbour views.
