Featuring a tropical glass house built in 1929, a cool house and a sunken fernery built in the remains of a disused scoria quarry, the Wintergardens is a "must-see" when visiting Auckland Domain . Featuring ever-changing collections of temperate and tropical plants, the gardens feature a formal courtyard with a lily pond and extensive displays of succulents, cycads and tropical orchids. The Fernz Fernery provides a lush green welcome escape from the heat on a summer's afternoon. Across the road from the Wintergarden is a popular tea house and kiosk.
Absolutely stunning floral display. All the better for notbeing bogged down in "educating" visitors - it is the perfect enviroment ot recharge the senses!
The tropical glasshouse is unparrelled, and the fernery is tranquil
