Pukekura Park, New Plymouth

Whilst I had the best of intentions to visit lots of gardens whilst in New Zealand, we were on the go so much that we really didn’t get much of a chance. However while in New Plymouth, Steve and I shot off on our own for a quick wander around Pukekura Park, one of New Zealand’s botanical gardens.

The Park has many features, including a 1930s tea house, fountain, fernery and glasshouses amongst native bush and formal gardens.  We only got around a small section at the southern end of the park, but I was really very impressed by how beautiful it was and it didn’t hurt that we had glorious weather.
