Welcome to the Kerikeri New World Rotary Garden Safari

Rotary Club of Kerikeri


With special thanks to the gardeners, our sponsors and its hard-working Garden Safari committee, the Rotary Club of Kerikeri looks forward to welcoming you to the 2014 Kerikeri New World Rotary Garden Safari.

It seems hard to believe that 27 years have passed since the dream of one Rotarian brought this amazing annual event to fruition. Each year, locals and visitors to the region take full advantage of the gates of participating gardens being thrown open - both literally and figuratively - with guests invited to explore the hidden treasures within.

Once again, the popular scarecrows will be appearing in town in the weeks leading up to the Safari weekend - make sure you get your vote in at Kerikeri New World as your vote is an entry into a lucky prize draw!

The fantastic array of participating gardens this year covers the range from small and intimate to large and sprawling, with something sure to please everyone. Refreshments will be available to purchase in some while others contain sculpture and art. Your brochure (which you receive with your ticket) provides you with detailed information, not only about each participating garden, but also about the sponsors that help make this event a reality.

Kerikeri Rotarians will be on duty in the gardens, supporting the gardeners and helping you enjoy your visit.

Finally, please accept our Club’s sincere thanks for taking part in the Garden Safari. The funds we raise from this event are used to support local and international community and youth development projects. We hope you enjoy your Safari weekend and return home safely, brimming with enthusiasm and new ideas for your own piece of paradise.
