Auckland Garden DesignFest Bus Tour


Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th November 2019

Following the success of our previous bus tours, we are offering more this year, visiting a carefully selected range of gardens catering for a wide range of interests.

The tour leaders will be former lecturers in Landscape Architecture Penny Cliffin and Ian Henderson, along with Anna-Maria Morris and Jo Macdonald, both qualified landscape designers. All are long-serving members of the Garden Design Society of New Zealand (GDSNZ).

The tours will give you an insight into the gardens, the designers and provide plant selection information with printed notes and plans. At the last garden of each tour, we will round off the day with an opportunity for an informal walk around the garden, glass of wine in hand.

Feedback from the 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017 tours was outstanding.
