No gardening in the Hamilton Gardens
The Hamilton Gardens are totally different to the other Botanic Gardens in New Zealand. Its feature gardens are strictly separated, enclosed and ordered like rooms in a large house. These gardens are called the Paradise Collection.
Outside this unique area there are some relaxing grassy spaces and a lake where you can feed ducks.
At the entrance you find this huge sculpture which shows a giant replica of a Maori cloak.
