Over seven decades Pukeiti has built up one of the world’s biggest and most diverse collections of rhododendrons and other exotics, their rich colours bursting into life against a backdrop of lush native rainforest. The 360 ha property also boasts an absorbing range of free family orientated activities, walking tracks for all fitness levels, a modern visitor centre, the popular Rainforest Eatery and the Pīwakawaka Family Hut which can be booked on the website.
We have a comprehensive range of activities and events planned for the Festival, however, because of the changing nature of the pandemic, please follow our website and social media to keep up to date.
Pukeiti is open all day every day with free entry for all. It is owned and managed by the Taranaki Regional Council.
The Rainforest Eatery is open throughout the festival from 8.30am – 4pm daily.
