The Otari Botanical Garden seems to be an international garden where famous trees and flowers are almost visible from all over the world. Among them are Chinese camellia, French roses, Brazilian coral trees, Argentina's Devil's Hand, Canary Islands Phoenix Tree, Australian Hair, Norfolk Elm, African Cedar, North American Goose Palm, Dutch Tulip and many-colored Japanese cherry blossoms.
The beautiful and tranquil Wellington Botanical Garden (Wellington Botanic Garden) is located at the top of Wellington Cable Station (Wellington Cable Car), covering 25 hectares (64 acres), just minutes from the downtown business district. The Botanical Garden was built in 1844, and several of New Zealand's oldest foreign tree species settled there and flourished. "The botanical gardens are homegrown and exotic with elegant ponds, ducks and fun to swim on, seagull houses and cafes, colorful flowers, herb gardens, an Australian-style garden, and the award-winning Mrs. Norwood Rose Garden." The art-spirited large garden sculptures, human body daily routines (Sun Dial of Human Involvement) and invincible views of the city and the harbor add irresistible appeal to the Wellington Botanical Garden. In the historic Bolton Street Memorial Park (Bolton Street Memorial Park), the elegant roses that sway with the wind and the tombstones of the city pioneers will make you feel the spirit of pioneering intrepidity. At night, fireflies can be seen flying in the wet and dark places on the river banks. Wellington Botanical Garden is open to visitors free of charge every day.
Wellington is located on the North Island of New Zealand. Although it is at the southernmost tip of the island, the climate is much warmer than the South Island and there are many more plant species. Almost different species from tropical to frigid zone are displayed in the botanical garden!
Great weekend outing, great place to walk after dinner.
A wide variety of plants grow here, and it is New Zealand's largest endemic plant cultivation ground. Strolling among the flowers and trees, you can still see the birds of New Zealand, such as honeybirds and fantail pigeons, flying by leisurely.
Great botanical gardens that feel like Hagley Park in Christchurch.
