Things to see and do along the Pohutukawa Coast and Clevedon

1. Ayrlies Garden

02 iconAyrlies Garden is situated in the gentle rolling country of east Auckland, and is one of New Zealand's best known gardens. Your experience at Ayrlies Garden and Wetlands will change each and every time you visit based on the seasons, colours, weather and wildlife.

This truly beautiful garden began in 1964 with a 1.2 hectare bare paddock of heavy coastal clay, and now covers some 4 hectares of rolling terrain including sweeping lawns and informal but detailed plantings by ponds and waterways. The thirty-five acre wetland situated adjacent to the garen consisted of an eight acre lake that is seen from many parts of the garden and in its own way links the garden to the sea.  Ayrlies has been created by Beverley McConnell and her late husband Malcolm.  The New Zealand Gardens Trust has ranked Ayrlies as a Garden of International Significance.
