I saw a world garden in the North Island of New Zealand
Before arriving in Auckland, the last stop was Hamilton. The city is not small, the road is wide, and people suddenly get more. We have an incompatibility from the countryside to the city.
Hamilton We only arranged one place, the Hamilton Garden. This garden, let us stroll for 3 hours. The
Hamilton Garden has a large footprint and is divided into many areas. It is best to look at the map in advance to find out, otherwise it will be easy to get lost.
I recommend the paradise botanical garden combination, which we like most. It includes gardens in several countries, including Chinese southern gardens, British manors, Japanese gardens, and characteristic gardens in the United States, India, and Italy. There are also prolific garden combinations and cultivar garden combinations, collectively referred to as Enclosed Gardens on the map. The entrance to this area is a small door next to the visitor center, but it can be huge when you go in.
Three passages in a central square lead to different gardens, 14 gardens interlaced, separated by green walls.
Slightly inadvertent or too casual, it is easy to get around, like a labyrinth, people can continue to explore, but also encounter many surprises.
The opening ceremony of the Hamilton Garden was held on July 24, 1960 and currently covers more than 54 hectares. The Hamilton Garden is not just a botanical garden. On the contrary, its theme is to express the history, background and significance of the garden, and to convey the concept of garden design and garden art through five different styles of garden collections, just like a garden museum, rich and full of vitality. The Paradise Garden highlights include China Yichang Garden, British Flower Garden, Japanese Siyuan, American Modern Park, Italian Renaissance Park, and Indian Quarter Park, representing the small garden design tradition. The prolific garden highlights include the Maori National Park (under construction), the kitchen garden (the vegetables and fruits that people often eat here are planted here), the herb gardens (traditional herbal plants), and the continuous development of garden gardens, representing people and plants. The relationship between each other. The Imagination Garden Collection is a fragrant garden. The highlights of the cultivation garden include the Rogers Rose Garden (including the New Zealand Rose Experiment), the New Zealand Plantation Garden, the Rhododendron Flower Garden, the Mond Camellia Garden, and the Victoria Flower Garden (including the Victorian Greenhouse), which houses plants carefully cultivated for the garden. The landscape garden highlights include the Buksac Woodland, Valley Walk, Hamilton East Park Graveyard, and echogenic shore shrubs, representing a different historical interpretation of an idealized landscape. There are also river embankments (Wikato River embankment), Waikato Institute of Technology horticultural education center, lakeside courtyard, Hamilton nursery, young bulls, wood carvings, etc. (made by some famous artists).
I have been unconsciously traveling in New Zealand for the past four days. I just had a general understanding of the North Island. I will end my trip to the North Island and go to the next stop on the South Island.
Leave Lake Taupo and drive to the last destination of the North Island today, Hamilton Gardens. It is not only one of the places where Wu Qilong and Liu Shishi took wedding photos, but also won various awards. It is really a soft hand. The
Garden is located at the southern end of Hamilton and is built along the Waikato River. In fact, it is not planned according to the traditional botanical gardens. It is based on the relationship between people and plants. It consists of 5 theme garden combinations. .
The paradise garden is the paradise botanical garden. It is a collection of gardens from different countries, such as China, Britain, Japan, USA, India and Italy. Each garden is a very interesting place. Among them, the Chinese garden has the charm of the typical Jiangnan garden. The bridge is flowing and the winding path is quiet. It is no wonder that Wu Qilong and Liu Shishi have come here to marry. The Indian Garden is a typical representative of India, suitable for punching cards.
There is also a super fascinating fantasy garden combination where you can feel the endless imagination and creativity.
Ended the Hamilton Gardens and headed north to Auckland for a flight to Christchurch, the largest city in the South Island.
