These gardens are beautiful, we spent a couple of hours walking the very large grounds, taking photos and just enjoying a lovely day in Dunedin. Includes a playground and plenty of picnic areas for families too. Very pleasant way to spend some time here.

Definitely worth a visit especially in spring. The 4 hectare rhododendron dell is luscious. Don't miss the educational aviary.

We were lucky to stay in a motel located a couple of blocks from the Dunedin Botanical Gardens and visited the gardens and the Croque-O-Dil Cafe in the center of the gardens on our way out of town.

Our hotel was just across this garden so before dinner we decided to check it out. What a lovely place this was. We found that there were new surprises at every turn we took and the garden extended up on the hills too where you can get a nice view of the whole place.

If you love flowers then this Garden is a must to see . November is Rhododendron month so the garden was alive with spectacular color. Wonderful trails to explore. Ate at the Crocodile Cafe. also visited the Aviary. A true delight.

We spent some time in the gardens to relax and we did enjoy our time. There are lovely collections and spaces. We did find it a bit difficult to work out where to park and some extra chairs might have been nice. Overall though these were lovely well looked after gardens.

These gardens are hidden and the end of the Main Street in Dunedin. They are truly beautiful and remarkably well maintained. The little cafe is lovely for a sandwich and a coffee. The aviary is not well advertised but well worth the walk.
