Land of the Lotus

Angela Bryan

Just a 15min drive from the Whangarei you’ll find Land of the Lotus – Water Gardens and Banana Park.

A labour of love for Hugh and Pauline, these gardens are just amazing, a must stopover for all garden lovers.

With several options to park up including a sheep fold that you can camp in. What is a sheep fold? you ask, you’ll have to visit to find out. There is also a cabin complete with al fresco kitchen and outside toilet and shower.

Take a wander through the many trails that meander through 60 acres of forest and gardens and stop off at the lily pond for some quiet contemplation while the kids occupy themselves at the playground.

Check out the slide show above.

The bonus is you can buy banana plants, pineapple plants, lotus plants and a multitude of others that this couple lovingly grow.
