Welcome

Awahou Gardens is four acres of lush flowering perennials, old roses, woodlands and ponds set on 12 acres of land, only 25 minutes drive from Palmerston North in the beautiful Pohangina Valley.

The gardens have been in development for over 8 years, and we are still in the process of building and extending different parts for you to explore. We opened to the public in 2013 and have an extensive plant nursery on site.

Our opening hours are Thursday and Friday 10am to 4pm. Garden entry is free for those purchasing more than $30 in plants from our nursery, otherwise is $5 per person.

Bus parking is available for small to medium buses, and the gardens can be used for wedding photography and ceremonies, by arrangement. Group visits, morning and afternoon teas are also by arrangement only.
