NEW GARDEN: Concept Garden

February 2018
Thu 1st



From 9am 


Entry and parking to Hamilton Gardens is free. 


The latest garden to be revealed at Hamilton Gardens features a steampunk airship!

Inspired by a time when steam power ruled the world, the Huddleston airship is the Gardens’ newest piece of gardening equipment. Designed to glide through the night delivering plants for the gardening team, the fanciful airship can be discovered tethered beside the Concept Garden - which will be the latest garden to open at the award-winning Waikato attraction on 1 February 2018.

Come along to the public opening to meet Gardens Director Dr Peter Sergel before exploring this fantasy garden.

The garden forms part of the Fantasy Collection and is a modern representation of the Gardens’ internationally unique concept of telling the Story of Gardens through time, and across different civilisations.
