What people are saying:

The Government Gardens, located in the center of Rotorua, is Rotorua's most eye-catching landmark. Elegant and atmospheric building. Deep in the large lawn of the garden is the Rotorua Museum of History and Art. Built in 1908, the building has a spire with red tiles and yellow walls. The floor is not high and the width is very wide. It combines Tudor architectural style and Victorian architectural style. The buildings with great architectural aesthetics, close-up and distant view, left and right shot, are all beautiful photos. Quiet and beautiful garden. The wide lawn, green grass, surrounded by benches; the quiet garden, blooming flowers, hidden in the depths of delicate buildings and sculptures. Citizens and tourists, some are strolling, some are in a daze, and some are clocking in.

    Worth a few minutes on a sunny day

    Always a pleasure when in Rotorua to spend a few minutes wandering around this area. Some interesting buildings, nice plantings and a pleasant fish pond. On a warm, sunny day a real joy.

    Bit boring

    Not what I had expected. The art around is very disappointing. Was expecting carvings and some impressive statues and Maori works to be in the gardens. The art was weird and really didnt mean anyth...

    Lovely area

    Lovely area to wander around on a good day. The gardens are well kept and lead down to the lake and Sulphur Point.

    POPULAR TOURIST ATTRACTION.

    Beautiful Government Gardens is a public park, located beside Lake Rotorua. It is a major tourist attraction.
