Gardens of the World is a six acre wonderland with spectacular plantings from all around the world. Lakes, streams, bridges fountains, formal gardens, sweeping lawns, and the incredible sounds of birds, a remarkable setting with an array of plantings from Australia, New Zealand, Asia, America, Africa & Europe. With also a Herb Garden, Water Gardens & much more. What I love most is that the gardens have been landscaped so that anyone can visit at anytime of the year.
The history behind these beautiful gardens is unique & warms my heart. Geoff & Gillian Etherington were the founders of the Gardens Of The World. It was their dream to create a unique & special place for all to enjoy. The result of their vision, dedication & hard labour can be seen & appreciated today in the six races of landscaped spender. Gardens of the World have won many awards & also winning attraction for both international & domestic visitors. Today Gardens of the World is owned & operated by the Day family, a long stand Nelson family who share a passion for the gardens & this global treasure.
I had such an incredible day while visiting these gardens. It's so peaceful & really just the perfect place to relax & chill out.
