Paloma Gardens Whanganui
Exotic gardens, landscaped with plants from all over
Come explore the exotic Paloma Gardens, landscaped with plants from all over the world, from the jungles of Asia to the deserts of Africa and the Americas. Paloma Gardens has been awarded “Garden of National Significance” by the New Zealand Gardens Trust for the past thirteen years.
Paloma Gardens commenced in 1990 and is maturing rapidly due to the mild, almost frost-free climate in Whanganui.
The garden is best presented as several distinct zones, including the Palm Garden, the Desert House, the Garden of Death, the Bamboo Forests, the Jardin Exotique, the Wedding Lawn and the two Arboreta – unique among the Gardens In Whanganui.
A large pond in the centre of the garden is crossed by an arched bridge and doubles as the family swimming pool. An older area surrounds the house where there are maturing specimens of palms, cycads and tree ferns. Large plants of Aloe bainesii and A. polyphylla can be found here.
Paloma Gardens welcome bookings for weddings, celebrations and gatherings at Paloma. Why not enjoy a relaxing stay in our romantic bed and breakfast, the Red House?
