Living Art, Ayrlies Garden

Considered by experts to be one of the finest private gardens in the world, this stunning 12 acre garden is the result of more than 50 years of hard work and dedication by the owners and a small team of long serving gardeners.

The New Zealand conservation wetlands, covering a further 35 acres, are home to many species of native flora and fauna.

Available as a private couple’s tour, small group tour and a good choice for partner programmes and incentive groups.
