November 10 2018 - November 11 2018


We’re proud to be the major sponsor of this year’s Waiheke Garden Festival, and you can get your tickets to experience over 9 of Waiheke’s most interesting and creative gardens.

Waiheke Garden Festival 2018

Book a Fullers Garden Festival tour to make it easy to see selected gardens, local artists and musicians in the gardens, lunch as well as other local artisan food.  Fullers Garden Festival tours run on Saturday and Sunday, and Saturday’s tour includes the Sundowner garden as well.

Local plant grower Ngaio Lewis has an array of plants for sale at her property on Seaview Road. Her team propagates throughout the year so that the Jassy Dean Trust can benefit from the sales. Her garden is also very lovely and worth a wander through.

Wharetana Bay is included in your Waiheke Garden Festival ticket and gives you the chance to finish up your day at the historic Wharetana Bay Homestead off Rothschild Lane.  Watch the sunset, enjoy local artisan food and live music.

Continue your garden journey on Sunday if you didn’t fit everything in and also take in one of our informative gardening workshops or demonstrations.

The Waiheke Garden Festival is in its 18th year and a favourite for Waiheke locals and visitors alike, and all benefiting the Jassy Dean Trust, a Waiheke children's charity.
