Very nice rose garden outside and beautiful begonias and orchids in the greenhouses. There is also a nice little cafe if you need a bite to eat. You can get to the gardens by vehicle or take the cable car up and walk back down.

A relaxing and peaceful area with views of Wellington below, this is a nice way to spend a few hours in the afternoon. You can take the cable car up for a fee, or walk up along the road instead. There are some open green spaces near the rose garden where you can lie on the grass and take a nap too.

The gardens are pretty to walk through - especcially the rose garden at the bottom of the hill. But it's the playground here that the children will love. There's a flying fox for the bigger kids and a designated toddler area for the littlies. There's also a duck pond where you can feed the birds with some bread.

What I loved most about the gardens would have to be their location! The gardens themselves were beautiful but what really made them memorable was the cable car ride up to them! And at the top you can look out over the entire city! Wonderful experience!

Famous because of the red cable car that whisks you up the mountain to visit, these beautiful gardens are right in the middle of the city and a great way to get some green into your summer's day.

Once you get to the top of the Cable Car go for a wander in the garden. Great views of the city and beautiful manicured gardens.
