The 76th Annual conference of the NZ Rhododendron Association
|We warmly invite you to the southern region to attend SOUTHERN RHODENZA 2022. It is 18 years since we hosted this gathering in Gore. We are eager to share some of our notable and diverse gardens.
On the first day we will visit one of New Zealand's most outstanding private gardens Maple Glen. After viewing other gardens in this area we will finish the day with a visit to Bannerman Park, with its 4 star rating by the New Zealand Gardens Trust.
Viewing on the second day will start with gardens in Gore, followed by two large rural gardens, one in Greenvale and the other at Castle Rock, enroute to Queenstown.
On the final day we will visit two gardens nestled in the Wakatipu Basin, Queenstown. The first is newly developed, the second is the well established Chantecler garden with its stunning views.
We hope that you will take the opportunity to extend your stay in the South either before Rhodenza 2022 to visit the Catlins or Stewart Island or post hRodenza 2022 to explore Queenstown, Fiordland and Central Otago further.
Please come prepared for all seasons. We look forward to hosting you for SOUTHERN RHODENZA 2022.
