Mangakahia Garden Ramble

Held on Sunday 26th November 2023

A successful third season fundraising for the Mangakahia Sports and Community Complex, visitors had the opportunity to view a selection of new gardens plus some old favourites in the Mangakahia, Maungatapere area.

On the trail this year were nine beautiful gardens with an abundance of flowers, landscaping features and numerous sculptural elements. We had delightful urban gardens through to large country gardens, subtropical gardens and a stunning natural waterfall feature.

There were plants for sale and numerous garden related stalls.

General Admission – $30
