What to bring
Go and explore
Look out for the Guardian Post when you get there. On it you’ll find a special code word – write it down, but don’t share it (we don’t want to spoil everyone else’s adventure).
Auckland Botanic Gardens is located 25 km from central Auckland, off SH1 Southern Motorway on Hill Road. Take exit 451 from the north and exit 453, then Urban Route 3 from the south.
