Botanica is an oasis of green in the heart of the city. Enjoy the colourful and exotic palms, orchids, bizarre cacti and succulents, fragrant subtropical plants, native ferns and filmy ferns.

The Marge Maddren Fernery houses a large collection of native ferns, trees and shrubs found in New Zealand and it’s offshore islands. The Snow Conservatory is home to a wonderful collection of tropical and subtropical plants – a tropical hideaway complete with birdsong and the gentle cascade of the waterfall. The Cactus House uses passive solar heating to recreate the hot arid conditions that cacti and succulents revel in.

Botanica is also available to hire for weddings, photos, and other functions.
