Murray and Roslyn Holyoake

Edibles and art abound in this gorgeous garden surrounding a Ron-Sang designed home in the inner city.  There is no wasted space in this garden, designed by the owners.

One half of the property is devoted to a terraced productive garden.  There’s a walk-in berry house, a structure with passion fruit, raised garden beds flush with vegetables and cages of bountiful berries.

An olive tree lined driveway leads to the house, where the entrance is highlighted with colourful and textured sub-tropical plants.  The planting aroud the house is large and bold in scale, with a lot of under planting, leading to a formal lawn in front of the house.

To the front of the house a garden featuring towering birds of paradise and Poor Kinght’s lilies, has a focal point of a giant “Lego Mario” sculpture, loved by children.

The experience is completed by a café in the house where the Holyoake’s offer light lunches of delicious homemade hot food, salads and sweet treats for the benefit of ‘The New Hair Project’ (not for profit) helping people with hair loss.  Open for the duration of the festival.

The Holyoake Garden featured in the February 2018 issue of NZ House & Garden magazine.

Maria Brockhill garden art will be for sale during the festival.


Open 9:00am – 5:00pm, admission 1 ticket or $5pp
