Gardens Magic

Gardens Magic is back with our iconic Concert Series, a Light Display, and a Kids Garden Trail.

The Gardens Magic Concert Series filled our January summer nights with the sounds of our capital’s vivacious talent, set in the Botanic Gardens ki Paekākā Soundshell. The concerts and evening Light Display were enjoyed by thousands of Wellingtonians and visitors.

During the day, families enjoyed the Kids Garden Trail and Explorer Days, discovering the remarkable plants and animals of the Botanic Garden.

You can still visit our beautiful Botanic Garden ki Paekākā daily.
