Hamilton Gardens – Telling the story of gardens

Rather than focusing on plant collections, at Hamilton Gardens the emphasis is on different types of garden design. Traditional botanic gardens concentrate on plant collections, conservation, research and education, while Hamilton Gardens has the unique concept of showcasing the cultural meaning and context of gardens over the past 4,000 years.

Throughout history, gardens have been a way of expressing the important philosophical ideas of their time. In some respects the story of gardens reflects the story of civilisation and attitudes to the natural world.

The collections of gardens at Hamilton Gardens explore the history, context and meaning of gardens. Each tells a story and offers an insight into a different civilisation.

Zealong Tea Estate is widely regarded as one of the finest experiences in the Waikato, you can enjoy the ultimate in luxury at Zealong Tea Estate. Not only does Zealong Tea Estate specialise in unique tea blends, it also offers a unique blend of New Zealand hospitality.

Zealong Tea Estate is the only commercial tea estate in New Zealand. The estate produces 100% organic tea that has attracted multiple awards. Wrapped around their tea expertise, is a world-leading destination for art and hospitality.

Offering serene views, a variety of function venues, public activities and tours, their multi-talented team is dedicated to creating an extraordinary guest experience every day in an unrivaled setting.

This is one of Ready2Roll’s favourite destinations with the Tea Tour a real highlight. The tour leads visitors along the Zealong Tea trail, learning the history of the unique NZ grown tea as visitors enjoy unique sculptures and scenic stops along the way. Not only will visitors learn how the tea is picked and processed, but a special tea tasting teaches the art of tea appreciation, of appearance, aroma, and taste. There is an optional Signature High Tea at the Tea House overlooking the Estate.
