Description

Discover a historic waterwheel and wander the beautifully presented borders surrounding the Main Lawn. This is a place for children – there is intrigue, surprise and adventure as families journey through the property. Pukeiti is huge – with around 26 hectares of garden and 336 hectares of protected rainforest. The forest is rich with history – it whispers stories of the local Iwi, the pioneering Europeans and the continuing regeneration of the rainforest after the logging.

Learn more in the Bublitz Education Centre where you can find out about the plant collection, the rainforest, the spiritual significance of Pukeiti to the local Iwi, the pioneering Europeans and the passionate founding members and volunteers who toiled to create this garden over the decades.
