74 Kairau Road West, Waitara
John Wilmshurst and Diana Montgomery


Originally inspired by European design this 4 hectare garden bound by the Waiongana River has been evolving over the last 10 years. The mostly flat terrain has enabled many easy walking avenues and vista viewpoints. This garden is well known for the herbaceous peonies that usually flower during the festival. Scrumptious savouries, cakes, tea and coffee from The Cake Diary will be on sale in the Pavilion. This garden was featured in the June 2017 House and Garden magazine. Turn off Mountain Rd SH3A to access Kairau Rd West.
