Whangarei Quarry Gardens Trust

Please support the Whangarei Quarry Gardens Trust's planting development fund - so we can keep growing in the right direction.


“To inspire our community with a landscape of beauty and life” - the beautiful setting of Whangarei Quarry Gardens provides quiet respite from the fast paced lives we all lead.

The transformation of a former stone quarry into a subtropical oasis has been 20 years in the making, thanks to the sheer hard work of loyal volunteers. The established gardens are a stunning example of the strength of community, land restoration and beautification of an ex-industrial environment.

The Gardens' focus is to become a hub for the local gardening and environmental community, with a few great spaces available for meetings and workshops. With an emphasis on education, we have regular school visits and hope to encourage our tamariki to share in a love of nature, conservation and caring for our community. We want to move towards more workshops to encourage our community to embrace our philosophy of living harmoniously with nature.

As a non-profit charitable organisation, we rely entirely on donations and grants to purchase plants, maintain the Gardens and cover the running costs of the Visitor Centre. By supporting our planting fund, you can help us to keep developing the 25 hectare Gardens to an even higher standard. Focusing on key areas that need work, like planting out the far side of the lake, maintaining the upper tracks and upgrading the 5 senses garden at the entrance. We can even purchase more plant labels, as they are often asked for. Become part of the quarry community project and givealittle today. 🌳🍀❤️
