Rapaura Springs Garden Marlborough, NZ's premier garden event, was dreamt up by gardeners for gardeners. Celebrating Marlborough's stunning landscape, it showcases the very best the region has to offer with a range of garden tours, workshops and social events.
Full and half day garden tours encompass everything from compact designer gardens in the heart of town to breath-taking country estates. Workshops provide the opportunity to brush up on skills and horticultural knowledge with experts from New Zealand and overseas, led this year by British garden designer Chris Woods.
The always popular Garden Party on the Saturday night is a chance to sip and mingle with speakers, guests and like-minded enthusiasts.
On Sunday is the Stihl Shop Garden Fête, entertainment for the whole family, over 200 stalls offering the best from New Zealand and a chance to kick off Christmas shopping.
With the stunning Marlborough Sounds on its doorstep, rugged mountain ranges, fertile plains and world class Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough has a lot to offer – so stay for the whole weekend, or longer!
