Gardens and Galleries Arrowtown and Queenstown art and garden tour supporting Plunket

The summer event of the season is happening in Arrowtown and Queenstown this February. 

Garden and art lovers, come and explore some of the Whakatipu Basin's best gardens and art galleries, all in support of Plunket


Held over three days, across more than 15 art galleries and 10 stunning private gardens, with multiple events to choose from, including the spectacular Twilight Opera in Springpointer Garden, you won't want to miss this inaugural event.

The Gardens + Galleries event offers a beautiful cross-section of gardens, from small and compact to large park-like gardens. The artists’ trails in the Whakatipu Basin represent a diverse group of local painters and sculptors. 

End your weekend with a sumptuous fusion of music and magical landscapes at the Twilight Opera in Springpointer Garden on Sunday 11 February.
