Level 2 changes at Hamilton Gardens

Following an announcement from the Government, New Zealand will be under Alert Level 2 from 12pm Wednesday 12 August, excluding Auckland which is under Alert Level 3.

Hamilton Gardens is open to the public and operating under the Government guidelines for Alert Level 2.

Visitors are asked to maintain 2 metres physical distance from others and to be particularly considerate of other visitors in areas where space is restricted. All our public toilets are open and are being cleaned even more regularly than usual. The playground is open but we ask that parents and caregivers are mindful that their children maintain physical distancing from others while playing. 

Reduced hours at Level 2

  • The Enclosed Gardens are open from 10am to 4pm, last entry at 3.30pm. Please check in by scanning the Hamilton Gardens QR code using the Government’s NZ COVID Tracer App.
    This is due to physical distancing requirements and ensures Hamilton Gardens staff can work along paths and in the Enclosed Gardens without coming into close contact with visitors.
  • The Information Centre and Gift Shop is open 10am to 4pm and only accepting electronic transactions (no cash). Guided tours are not available during Level 2.
  • The Hamilton Gardens Cafe is open 9.30am to 4pm with the tables spaced out to meet physical distancing requirements. Please check in by scanning the Hamilton Gardens Cafe QR code.
