Eden Garden

 
 


Today's bit of Kiwiana for you is about Eden Garden (not the Garden of Eden).  You'll find this garden in the Auckland suburb of Mount Eden.

 


It is set in 2 hectares (c 5 acres) of former quarry land.  It was set up in 1964.  There is an admission fee – currently NZ$12 for an adult.  Children under 12 are free.

 


After looking round the garden, you could have tea or coffee at the cafĂ© – or even a glass of wine.  If you book a high tea, the entrance fee is included.

 


It is run by a not for profit, The Eden Garden Society.
