Wherever you look, there is magic to discover. From ponds, tree ferns, and cymbidium orchids by the thousand, to native tree plantings and an artistic feast of sculptures, Te Puna Quarry Park offers a day out in nature like no other!
A dedicated band of volunteers has transformed a disused quarry into a world-class park waiting for you to explore. The gardens are filled to the brim with particular areas of all varieties, including irises, cacti and succulents, a palm grove, a bonsai corner, a butterfly garden and much more. You can even travel to countries afar with our Australian area and South African area.
Planting at Te Puna Quarry Park commenced in 1997 with all the work and maintenance being carried out by volunteers. We hope to make this a park of botanical interest by keeping some areas as specialised plant groups.
Ready for a magical day out? Visit us today - we're open all day, every day, with FREE admission!
The Te Puna Quarry Park is maintained entirely by a group of volunteers, and we wouldn’t be here without them. All new projects, developments, maintenance, and general upkeep at the park are thanks to this dedicated team.
The circular track takes about 45 minutes to walk, but if you like exploring you could spend twice as long and still not see it all. We recommend stout footwear be worn.
The Te Puna Quarry Park is a wonderful spot for your special day, with countless backdrops to choose from. Whether you want to wed in a quaint park setting, or surrounded by intriguing art, there is something for everyone - no matter your style or theme.
We’re happy to reserve our building, The Gallery, for weddings or other functions. Included in the reservation are tables and chairs, the kitchen and other equipment. This is a great venue for indoor/outdoor weddings, as the Dragon Lawn alongside the Gallery is part of your reservation.

An artistic feast of sculptures awaits those who visit the Park. We have nearly fifty works of outdoor art on permanent display.
Mediums used include Hinuera Stone, pottery, and ponga (tree fern trunk), in sizes ranging from small pottery pieces to man-sized stone sculptures.
We actively promote outdoor art and hold Sculpture Symposiums within the Park.
Come along and see some of the talents that our wonderful local sculptors have to offer.
