Where can I find the Queen's Gardens?
The Queens Gardens are a perfect example of a classical Victorian garden. There are plenty of educational panels found around the gardens that help depict their history and story. The gardens are a vital part of the Historic Places Trust precinct.
The Gardens were first opened up back in 1892 to celebrate the Jubilee of Queen Victoria. They were created around a part of the Maitai Rover named the Eel Pond, which was a popular food gathering area for the Maori community.
Visitors of the gardens can expect to enjoy a lovely walk around and spot some of the garden’s sculptures and centrepieces! Some of the stunning features visitors of the gardens can spot include the Cupid Fountain, Water Wheel, The Boer War Memorial, and the Sentinel sculpture!
