The Taranaki Garden Festival is New Zealand’s number one garden and events festival, taking place this year from 28 October to 6 November 2016.

This year’s garden festival will feature over 45 diverse, inspiring, and beautiful gardens to celebrate the beginning of spring and all the beautiful flowers and scenery New Zealand has to offer. These 45 gardens will include at least 40 private gardens open exclusively to the public for the duration of the festival, 12 gardens of significance, and 10 new gardens. Also, there will be over a dozen exciting, free or paid events including house and garden tours, guided walks, workshops, celebrity chef demonstrations, and a diverse series of garden speakers. Celebrate the beauty and wonder of spring and book your tickets online today!

If you are planning on travelling to attend the Taranaki Garden Festival, then you will obviously need a place to stay. The Fitzroy Beach Holiday Park provides the perfect accommodations for people planning on attending the Taranaki Garden Festival this year. The Fitzroy Beach Holiday Park offers a wide variety of comfortable yet classy accommodation options. You can “glamp”, or go kiwi camping in style and luxury, in a large tent that includes everything from a full queen bed to a full kitchenette, from fresh linen and towels to comfy camping chairs.

At Fitzroy Beach, there are tonnes of fun things you and your whole family can do when not attending the Festival. The Fitzroy Beach Holiday Park is just a walk away from the Fitzroy Beach, which is perfect for swimming, sailing, or just relaxing on the beautiful clean sand. You can also walk along one of the scenic coastal walkways for some fresh air and beautiful, classic New Zealand scenery, visit one of the many historic villages and parks, or take your kids to the Brooklands Zoo or one of the sweet, old-fashioned candy shops in downtown Fitzroy, like The Sweet Life in Fitzroy shop.
