Some of the Best Gardens in the Country

Garden-lovers will find plenty to see in Waikouaiti. There is a small, but beautifully landscaped remembrance garden in the main street, with seats on which to sit while drinking an uplifting coffee or tucking into an ice cream.

Tucked away in Thomas St is the small but perfectly formed flower and garden of award winning weaver, Marion Day. Marion has a small studio where she demonstrates her art and displays her work. Visits by arrangement. Phone 03 465 7675.
