Kakahu Garden

1422 Winchester Hanging Rock Road, RD 21, Geraldine 7991


Immerse yourself in the wilderness of the woodland and parklike setting of century-old trees at Kakahu and an ocean of rhododendrons predominance of English trees, rhododendrons and camellias. Our garden dates back to the early 1890s when the first plantings were made. These plantings have grown into various ‘rooms’ each with their own story to tell.

‘Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago’ William Buffet
