It’s time to shake off the winter blues and celebrate the arrival of Spring!  

The annual Spring Festival at Wellington Gardens is the perfect way to get amongst the tulips and Spring flowers, to celebrate the season of new beginnings where fresh buds bloom and come to life. This year, the festival will run from 26 September to 11 October.  

Join us for a series of springtime events where we enjoy a new season with friends, whānau, and visitors. 

The full schedule of events will be listed by 4  September.
