For the safety and wellbeing of our community, our Gardens Magic and Kids Magic events weren’t able to go ahead in 2022, but we still wanted Wellingtonians to enjoy a free, summer’s day out at the beautiful Botanic Garden ki Paekākā - so we created a self-led daytime Gardens Trail to enjoy with whānau and friends in January.

Visitors delighted in following paths of discovery, including temporary and existing art works and fascinating historical features. Kaynemaile creations and the Gardens Gallery art and soundscapes were highlights.

You can still enjoy the beautiful Botanic Garden ki Paekākā, entry is free. Sculptures by Johnny Turner and Jason Hina will remain on display in the garden during 2022.

We hope to bring you the Gardens Trail experience again in 2023.
