Visit to Eden Garden

The weather was ideal for Dame Patsy's visit to Government House Auckland's next door neighbour Eden Garden.

Once a quarry, thanks to the efforts of the Eden Garden Society and a host of volunteers the site is now a magnificent garden featuring some wonderful plant collections, including a host of very impressive bromeliads. There's also a butterfly breeding programme to help increase numbers of our native butterflies.
