Grand Gardens

Grand Pacific Tours, the New Zealand Luxury Coach Holiday Specialists, has released

their latest special interest brochure – 2010 New Zealand 12 Day Fully Escorted

Garden Tour featuring the Ellerslie International Flower Show.

The tour departs 01 March, 2010 and offers travellers the opportunity to discover the

warm colours of New Zealand in autumn and is fully escorted by garden designer

and horticultural expert, Kevin Walsh. 

Incorporated in the itinerary are visits to 11 specialty gardens including a guided tour

to five in particular, where the group shall have only one guide per 24 travellers. The

varied selection of private and public gardens visited in Auckland, Rotorua, Napier,

Masterton, Wellington and Christchurch showcase the best of New Zealand’s flora;

with 10 of the gardens classified as Gardens of Significance, by the New Zealand

Gardens Trust, excellence is assured. Some of the gardens to be visited include the

audience the best of what New Zealand has to offer.
