Waiheke Garden Safari

We are immensely proud to present, for the enjoy­ment of all New Zealan­ders and inter­na­tional vis­i­tors, our Wai­heke Island gardens. Wai­heke Island is a unique com­mu­nity and a beau­ti­ful nat­ural envi­ron­ment. This unique­ness and beauty is an oppor­tu­nity that allows the Wai­heke com­mu­nity to sup­port its sick chil­dren with funds raised as a result of our guests vis­it­ing some of Waiheke’s most beau­ti­ful gar­dens each year at our annual Gar­den Safari.

The Wai­heke Island Gar­den Safari began in 2001, attract­ing approx­i­mately 350 guests and rais­ing around $5,000. Thir­teen years of the Safari has seen good growth each year, and in that time we have hosted nearly 10,000 guests through approx­i­mately 100 gar­dens and raised in excess of $145,000.00 to sup­port sick Wai­heke chil­dren and their families. Last year alone, over 1600 vis­i­tors enjoyed the Safari, which con­tributed in excess of $60,000 to the Trust’s work on the island.

This 13th year we are thrilled to be work­ing again with SeaLink as our prin­ci­pal Gar­den Safari sponsor…a won­der­ful part­ner­ship with won­der­ful oppor­tu­ni­ties for con­tin­ued Safari growth.
