Dunedin Botanic Garden

The Dunedin Botanic Garden is the oldest botanical garden in New Zealand, and was established in 1863. Conveniently located adjacent to Dunedin Leisure Lodge, it is a popular spot for guests to relax, exercise and soak up the natural beauty. 

It occupies 30.4 hectares in North Dunedin at an altitude of 25 – 85 metres above sea level. The Garden has hill views from sunny lawns, more than 6,800 plant species and the song of wild native bellbirds, wood pigeons and tui.

Its wide range of horticultural and botanical collections includes roses, the herbaceous and perennial borders, a rock garden, New Zealand native plants and four hectares of Rhododendron Dell with more than 3,000 rhododendrons.

In July 2010, the Dunedin Botanic Garden was awarded a rank of "Garden of International Significance" by the New Zealand Gardens Trust, becoming one of only five gardens nationwide to be awarded this honour. The only other garden in the South Island with this ranking is also in Dunedin, at Larnach Castle.

The Botanic Garden is open from dawn to dusk every day of the year. Please visit www.dunedinbotanicgarden.co.nz for the the opening hours for each of the public buildings. Admission to all areas of the Botanic Garden is free.
