The Event

Featuring a selection of Auckland’s most beautiful and rewarding gardens, large and small, this will be the fourth biennial DesignFest brought to you by the Garden Design Society of New Zealand and the Rotary Club of Newmarket. All proceeds go to our chosen children’s charities.

Once again you are promised a wide range of professionally designed gardens, nearly always involving a huge input by the garden owners themselves. Having thought long and hard about what they want included in their design briefs, these people are invariably passionate about the outcome. Come along and see what’s possible!

To whet your appetite, click on gardens to see those that were open in 2015. For Previous Events, go to our web site

The Rotary Club of Newmarket was formed in 1945 and since then its members have been involved in many community projects similar to the Auckland Garden DesignFest.

The Auckland Garden DesignFest is a project that will provide much needed funds to the selected charities so they can have the greatest positive influence for their communities. The Rotary Club of Newmarket is privileged to be associated with the Auckland Garden DesignFest.

Tickets for the next event will go on sale at the beginning of August 2017
