2020 marks 10 years of Pūkaha’s much loved annual fundraiser – the Pūkaha Wairarapa Garden Tour. To celebrate we’d love you to join us for the Pūkaha Garden Party, hosted by Rose & Smith, at Tauherenikau.

This two-day, self-drive garden tour will feature beautiful and unique gardens in South Wairarapa. Sure to delight gardeners of all ages, we’re excited to be bringing you some firm favourites and some new gardens that haven’t been on the tour before.

2020 will showcase gardens from Featherston, Martinborough, Greytown to as far north as Carterton. As always, the tour offers plenty of variety: gardens for small spaces, sustainable edibles, natives, ornamentals, rural homestead gardens and urban courtyards.

Pick your gardens and choose your route according to whatever tickles your gardening fancy. The tour offers more than 12 gardens to choose from.

Locally sourced and home-made refreshments will be available in selected gardens and BYO picnics are welcome in some gardens. Look for the icons to guide you.

Cash sales of plants available in selected gardens.

Earlybird tickets go on sale each year on 1 August. If you’d like a reminder, join our mailing list.

The event goes ahead rain or shine. As a fundraiser, monies raised go towards forest restoration at Pūkaha National Wildlife Centre.
