Join NZ Gardener editor, Jo McCarroll, as she hosts a bespoke tour of Riverlea Gardens on Saturday 29 October 2022.

About this event

From the organisers of the popular NZ House & Garden Tours, NZ Gardener is excited to be partnering with the highly anticipated Centuria Taranaki Garden Festival to launch the first ever NZ Gardener VIP Tours!

Join editor Jo McCarroll this spring as she hosts a series of bespoke tours as part of the festival’s jam-packed 10-day programme - a celebration of New Zealand’s biggest collection of glorious gardens, art and events.

Along with the garden owners themselves, these guided tours will explore four festival favourites and hear the backstories of these extraordinary gardens. Garden enthusiasts can also look forward to exclusive one-on-one time with Jo and have the opportunity to ask all those burning questions, or hear first-hand expert advice on garden tips and tricks that they love to read about in their favourite gardening magazine.

The tours will run across four days, with two tour-sessions per garden. Following each tour, the intimate group will enjoy some light refreshments in a tea party setting, as well as receive a complimentary goody bag filled with garden essentials.

Please note, tour groups have limited capacity so book early to avoid disappointment. Tour tickets are sold separately for each tour. One ticket entitles you to one tour session, for one of the four gardens.

What to expect on the Riverlea Gardens VIP Tour

The large garden property at Riverlea flows around a relocated and restored 120-year-old villa. Since 2003, the owners have poured their talents and passion into creating Riverlea.

They have engaged an array of ideas, including a perennial border, woodland garden and maple walk. The boardwalk to the river leads to secluded seating surrounded by rimu, kauri, nikau and other natives.

We have two identical VIP Tours at Riverlea Gardens on Saturday 29 October, one at 11.00am and one at 2.00pm.

Please book your preferred tour. Each tour runs for approximately 1 hour, followed by light refreshments.
