Otari Wiltons Bush Native Botanic Garden (Public)
It is just 10 minutes drive from Wellington's central business district to the five hectare Otari – Wilton’s plant collections and 90 hectares of bush where you may find some of the mature podocarp bush that once covered much of the city. This unique plant sanctuary has this country's foremost collection of native plants including many rare and endangered species. It also has a pristine remnant of the original forest and an extensive network of walks to suit all ages and abilities where may be seen old rata, kowhai, rimu, tawa and other large trees and vines. There is a magnificent walkway through the tree tops, an alpine garden with mountain tarn and borders where plants are arranged to show off their distinctive beauty.
