Waiheke Garden Festival

Waiheke Garden Safari has been delighting Island residents and visitors alike since 2001 and since 2017 we have a new format. The new name is Waiheke Garden Festival to reflect this change. It is still a must-see, self-drive event for gardeners and island visitors with gardening workshops and lectures in the gardens this year. Waiheke Garden Festival takes place over two days 10 & 11  November 2018. Our gardens are open 10 am to 4 pm both days. We are proudly sponsored by Fullers who also offer tour packages for the Festival. Ticket buyers get exclusive access to some of Waiheke Island's most interesting gardens while also supporting the Jassy Dean Trust. The Trust has been supporting on the island sick kids for the last 25 years. Find out more about the Jassy Dean Trust here.
