Full-day Akaroa Tour with Penguins Safari and Wine Tasting

1 review
Take time out to connect with nature and delight in a nature safari encompassing the wild penguins at Flea Bay. How peaceful is that! To complete your day, enjoy an end-of-day wine tasting (or non-alcoholic beverage) and afternoon platter at the very special French Peak vineyard.. Your journey to Akaroa takes in the stunning scenery of the rugged Banks Peninsula coastline and farmlands. Stopovers include the award winning Barrys Bay Cheese factory at Duvauchelle, and the quaint Little River Café & Gallery. You can also enjoy wandering around the French-inspired township of Akaroa (during the day, you will have a little over 3 hours spare time to wander in and around at your own pace).

Take and hour or two to visit Jendy and Chris, their two cocker spaniels and Charlie the cat in this beautiful garden that's full of interesting twists and turns, some brilliant sculpture and a marvelous collection of trees, shrubs and perennials. You'll be fascinated. We certainly were.

A very warm welcome, then we were given a map of the grounds with suggestions on how to go round them. We loved the gardens - so much to see, with so much variety; we appreciated the native bush and we were amused to be mobbed by fantails at one point. The shop is well worth a look around - some great things can be found there.

We visited the garden during February, and were delighted and amazed by the lovely design, the interesting and innovative plantings, and the whole delightful setting. During our 4 trips to New Zealand we have visited over 100 gardens and Jendy's garden is up there, close to the top of the list. As well as a myriad of views and secret 'rooms' we were surprised and delighted to find, about halfway round, a shaded dell with a hammock, a table, some chairs, and a pitcher of home made lemonade and a dish of home grown walnuts. An ideal break, and some beautiful memories.
