The latest garden to list with us is the Whangarei Quarry Gardens which is a community garden project created by volunteers in the forested western hills of Whangarei City. With the ongoing support of Whangarei District Council, Community Employment Groups and many loyal sponsors and friends, the once dilapidated quarry site has become a subtropical oasis for all to enjoy.

Perfect growing conditions aside, it has taken 16 years of sheer hard work and community dedication to grow Whangarei Quarry Gardens into their current form. The project has been a labour of love for the Northland community, created through the blood, sweat, and laughter of volunteers, supporting companies and other interest groups. 

Open 7 days from dawn to dusk for pedestrians / 9am-5pm for vehicles.

The Gardens are set over 60 acres and feature a lake, waterfalls, picnic areas, forest walks, a variety of gardens styles, and several historical remnants.
