This large garden property flows around a relocated and restored 120-year-old villa. Since 2003, Ann and Vince, owners of Big Jim’s Garden Centre, have poured their talents and passion into creating Riverlea. They have engaged an array of ideas, including a perennial border, woodland garden and maple walk. The boardwalk to the river leads to secluded seating surrounded by rimu, kauri, nikau and other natives. Buses by arrangement.
