Whangarei Quarry Gardens is a subtropical oasis created by volunteers in the remnants of a former quarry.
The Gardens are open to the public and feature a plethora of NZ native and exotic plant species.
The Gardens have been a work in progress for over 17 years. They are the efforts of staff, volunteers, supporting companies and other interest groups. New volunteers are needed and most welcome.
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.
Plenty of on-site parking is available at the Whangārei Quarry Gardens.
$800,000 upgrade is underway that will include upgrading and sealing the driveway all the way from Russell Road to the upper carpark. The upper carpark will be sealed and marked out with 19 car spaces and five bus spaces.
