    What an amazing place to visit. Gardens does not do it justice as a description. Very much an experience. We had a fantastic visit to this wonderful place. Every turn gave a photo opportunity. Allocate at least 2 hours - maybe three for this place. Thank you to all that work so hard there.

    Did the tiger encounter with my mother, had such an awesome time, got to feed one of the adult tigers some milk, got such an awesome close up experience. The keepers were absolutely lovely, super informative and were super happy to answer any questions we had. An overall amazing day, highly recommend!!!

    Good collection of automobiles and review on NZ motor vehicle history. Visited with family on a rainy day. Entrance fee are fair and the cafe is also captures local NZ favorites.

    What a gem of a place to visit. So different and well designed with the added Ruru sculpture hunt to help focus on the walk, Such varied planting which was so lovely with the variegation of there autumn leaves. Wonderful hospitality for our group with delicious lunch and carrot cake. What vision this couple had to see the transformation from a quarry to such a place of beauty

    awesome!

    what an excellent attraction, I could have walked around here all day. lovely selection of art and installations, they had a section on how they preserve art which I found fascinating. there was also a traditional Maori house made entirely out of crochet, which was very cool to see.

    partner and I had a lovely walk around, great spot to go for a relaxing afternoon

    Lovely walk, not difficult, lovely little pond with ducks and we fed the chickens near the arrival carpark. Good for dogs (must be on leads) and some beautiful views from the lookout point

    Sat on the shady side but the whole of the stadium has excellent views plus TV's and score board.
    A great stadium to see any event.

    Visiting Rurakura Berry Farm was an absolute delight! The lush fields of berries were a picturesque sight, and the experience of picking our own berries was truly enjoyable for the whole family. The berries were incredibly fresh and flavorful, making for the perfect snack as we wandered through the farm. The staff were friendly and helpful, providing helpful tips on the best berries to pick and how to properly harvest them. Overall, it was a fantastic outing filled with delicious berries and wonderful memories.

    A great place to hang out and relax, either at tables or on settees. Dogs are welcome, we took ours. Sample tasters are available if you don't know which craft beer to try. The beers we had were excellent, and the dogs lapped up their doggy beer. The food truck that day we Mexican and was also very good. Friendly staff and a warm atmosphere.

    What a fantastic few hours. We found Dale and his crew both informative and fun.
    Such a blast driving these very fast cars with a calm and precise instructor at my side.
    The hot lap at the end was amazing.
    Thanks so much
