Japanese Gardens 2

Located opposite the Wellington Caves Complex, the Wellington-Osawano Japanese Garden is the result of a $270,000 gift from the Wellington's Japanese sister city, Osawano.

One of the main features is a man-made mountain from which water cascades down a stream of ponds before winding its way under several bridges to a reflection pool.

A water pavilion sits over the pool, while another feature is a 4.5 metre stone lantern tower donated by firms in Osawano.

Entry is free, so why not spend some time wondering through and taking in the beautiful scenery.

Open: Daily
Location: Caves Road, Wellington
