“The Gardens at Timara are the finest in New Zealand”

Text taken from a recent 2016 guest feedback


Timara Lodge’s beautiful gardens are well renowned with garden enthusiasts throughout New Zealand and are meticulously maintained by a team of experienced and knowledgeable gardeners. Amidst the 25 acres of magnificent gardens is a five-acre lake and an extensive and immaculately kept English-style garden featuring sweeping lawns,  a historic fully mature Arboretum with exotic and native trees, some more than a century in age, mixed among our perfumed garden, our woodland walks, and a stunning rose garden featuring more than 450 roses.

F8Separately we also have a daffodil park with more than 6,000 daffodils, picked annually for local charities.

Recalling the charm of days gone by, the elegant landscaped gardens are abundant with native bird life. When you stay at Timara Lodge, you can wake each morning to the sweet sound of bird song: the inquisitive peep of fantails, the distinctive chime of Bell-birds, the chatter of Tuis and silver eyes. Native wood pigeons occasionally visit, their wings ponderously beating the air, and the placid lake attracts waterfowl of all kinds, including black swans, teal, heron, geese and ducks.


Taking a walk through the garden is a beautiful and energizing way to start your day at Timara Lodge.
