Thank you to everyone who visited our gardens and attended our events for the 2021 Taranaki Garden Festival.

26. Goodin Country Garden

158 Mirakau Rd

Set amidst old coastal lahars, large volcanic rocks lend drama to this country garden. Spacious lawns spread out from the family home—the central anchor of the property. Mature trees are surrounded by lush plantings of clivia, roses and rhododendrons. Chris and Steak’s daughter, Nicci Goodin, is a prominent New Plymouth florist and much of the planting is with her creativity in mind. There is plenty of room for a picnic, take some time out to relax and enjoy a Devonshire Tea. EVENT: The Slacks
