This special two-day festival happening on November 14 and 15 will feature up to 20 private gardens across Auckland that are not normally open to the public.
Organised by the Garden Design Society of New Zealand and the Rotary Club of Newmarket, the DesignFest gives visitors the opportunity to chat to designers in the gardens they have created. The event will raise funds for Ronald McDonald House, Garden to Table and the Rotary Club of Newmarket Charitable Trust. Daily bus tours to a selection of gardens will leave each day from Auckland’s historic home, Highwic in Newmarket.
Tickets for the Auckland Garden DesignFest go on sale at iTICKET on 01 August 2015, plus various garden retailers and onsite at the garden gate. Visitors can choose from a $65 all garden ticket or single garden access for $10 each. Visit Garden DesignFest for further details.
