I was recently offered an opportunity to expand my business by taking visitors to the Auckland Botanic Gardens. Auckland Botanic Gardens (the Gardens) is an award-winning botanic garden based in Manukau. The gardens are unique with a distinctive South Pacific flavour. The Gardens covers 64 hectares with 10 hectares in native forest. There is a very good Visitor Centre which provides a space for creative displays and exhibitions and Café Miko offers various food options with morning and afternoon teas plus lunches. I think you would agree that the gardens and landscape is absolutely stunning.
