The Wakatipu Plunket Garden Tour promises to be an amazing day out for people of all ages.

You'll have the chance to experience some of the most beautiful and spectacular gardens in the Wakatipu region on this one-day self-drive tour, including some never-before-featured gardens as well as some unexpected local treasures. New for families attending Garden Tour this year is the addition of the Zoological Gardens in Frankton. This amazing venue, a natural habitat featuring many species of birds and wildlife on the edge of the beautiful Kawarau River, is perfect for families with children of any age to explore and enjoy a picnic. Mitre 10 will be providing a complimentary sausage sizzle on the day at the Zoological Gardens for ticket holders.

What's more ticket holders will also receive a complimentary Devonshire cream tea at the magnificent Chantelcer Homestead - a NZ Gardens Trust 4 star garden - accompanied by live music, wine sales, raffle prize draws, and more, designed to ensure you have a memorable day out.

New for 2016, every ticket holder will also have a chance to win a $1,000 garden makeover voucher, sponsored by Mitre 10 Mega Queenstown . A golden envelope containing a $1,000 voucher will be hidden in one of the garden tour ‘goody bags’ that are given out to every ticket holder on the day. This ‘golden ticket’ will give ticket-buyers a chance to transform their own home garden through the addition of new plants, irrigation, paving and more, so that you can create your own spectacular home garden.

The self-tour maps and goodie bags, including a free coffee voucher from Columbus Cafe, will be available on the day at Mitre10 Mega Queenstown, 46 Brookes Road, Shotover Park. All proceeds from the day will be used to support Wakatipu Plunket's services for local families and children under 5 years of age, so you'll have a great day out but also help out a worthy cause.

Please note: Early ticket buyers qualify for a bonus free Spring Tour of the Chantecler homestead (14 Lower Shotover Road, Queenstown) on Saturday 29th October between 10 and 3pm, where you will get to see over 700 rhododendrons in blooms as well as a multitude of other spring flowers. Just bring your ticket along to gain entry.

Don't miss your unique chance to see some of the most incredible gardens in the area whilst helping to support an important community organisation. Garden Tour maps and goody bags will be available for collection from 9 am to 11am on the Sunday 4th December from Mitre 10 Mega, Queenstown. The Chantecler afternoon tea event will be from 1pm to 4pm.
