“Great setting, super food...”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

A lovely place with a welcoming atmosphere - the parkland is stunning, and it is surprisingy little-known by most Aucklanders. The comparison with Osborne House in the UK is a little fanciful, but in its own terms it is a real treat. Foremost in any visit will be the superb café, which has quality written through all its choices. With a very helpful and attentive approach from its experienced members of staff. I hope that an official disabled parking space will be provided nearer to the wheelchair entrance soon.

“Wallace Art Centre”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Have visited the beautiful grounds and art centre several times and it is a great place to visit. The displays change often. We saw an amazing sculpture display by Terry Stringer and just recently the Wallace art awards. A wonderful display of high quality art all very different.
Cafe is great and there is free parking. Entry by donation/Koha.
