Whangarei Quarry Gardens is a subtropical oasis created by volunteers in the remnants of a former quarry in Russell Road, Whangarei.
The Gardens are open to the public and feature:
native forest walks (connecting to Coronation Reserve),
a scented Camellia collection,
a plethora of NZ native and exotic plant species
and so much more...
The Gardens have been a work in progress for over 17 years and have been created through the blood, sweat, tears and laughter of staff, volunteers, supporting companies and other interest groups. New volunteers are needed and most welcome.
Located just off SH1 (look for the 'Subtropical Quarry Gardens' signs) and open from dawn to dusk every day for pedestrians.
Admission is by gold coin donation, with all proceeds used to purchase plants and equipment. Please do not take flowers or any part of any plant and stay on the paths.
You will find a Visitors Centre and Cafe at the Whangarei Quarry Gardens.
