Te Popo Gardens


The Garden

A Maori name for "lullaby", Te Popo is a peaceful country retreat of great beauty filled with birdsong.

Te Popo's 13 hectares has magic for all the senses. Birdsong will accompany your stroll through parkland encircled by borders of every colour, form & shape; a broadleaf and conifer woodland; and secret gardens tucked behind clipped hedges. Pristine waters flow through 50 feet deep river gorges and magnificent native trees, ferns and vines clothe the extensive forest trails. Three bridges, waterfalls and ponds bind these diverse elements into a unique cool temperate NZ experience. Hosted 4-star accommodation is a special feature.
