Rotorua District Festival of Gardens

The 2015 Rotorua District Festival of Gardens will showcase over 40 gardens throughout the district from tiny town gardens to large rural properties.

As the organisers are volunteers and the gardeners open their gardens for no charge, funds can then be donated to the BayTrust Rescue Helicopter. The 2013 Festival raised $15,000 for them.

It is the garden owners’ vision, hard work and generosity that ensure a successful Festival. It provides a catalyst for visitors to enjoy beautiful gardens as well as Rotorua’s myriad of activities. Many people use it as a chance to visit family and friends while, at the same time, contributing to a worthy charity – the BayTrust Rescue Helicopter.
