Looking to the sky
Eastwoodhill is a great spot for families.


A little known NZ gem. Regarded as the most comprehensive collection of Northern Hemisphere trees south of the equator. But that statement doesn't do it justice.

You can feel the thought, heart and care from many generations that has gone into Eastwoodhill when you wander within its grounds.

- Guided tours, dinners, events, meetings and conferences.
- 25km of tracks, 15,000 trees/shrubs, some rare species.
- Accommodation, catering, children's activities.
- POP stop and overnight stay for self contained campervans available.

Pleasant stop off if you are passing, not sure I would go a long way out of the way to visit this. It is a long way off the beaten track. Strange also to be visiting a collection from the Northern hemisphere, having just come from the Northern hemisphere. Still a very pleasant walk in the woods. Visitor centre was excellent and you there is overnight accomodation available as well. The huge ball of marble suspended by water pressure was fascinating.

Even if you don't particularly like trees, Eastwoodhill Arboretum is one of NZ's hidden treasures. So much thought and effort has been put into this place. And it shows.
