First held in 2003, this exciting annual event continues to evolve and grow in popularity, attracting garden enthusiasts and visitors from Northland, Auckland and further afield.
The event remains the most important fundraiser for both the Mangawhai Kindergarten and Mangawhai Plunket groups, assisting them to provide quality facilities, resources and equipment to our youngest community members – all free of charge! Read more about these groups and how they benefit local families with young children on our BENEFICIARIES page.
The Mangawhai Garden Ramble is a wonderful community based fundraiser that offers patrons the opportunity to explore a unique and interesting array of private gardens, estates & boutique businesses in Magical Mangawhai and surrounds. Each year the selection of gardens varies in size, style and age, with several featuring special attractions such as ponds, water features, artwork and historic buildings. More about this on our GARDENS page.
In 2017, there will be an assortment of new and unseen gardens, some returning exhibitors with well established, mature gardens and a host of other new initiatives to delight both first-time and returning ramblers. We are planning for increased night shows, more children-specific activities to encourage family involvement, and in response to Rambler feedback, a variety of cuttings, plants and garden art will be available for purchase at a few of the gardens.
Please reserve the dates of 11th & 12th November 2017, and join us for yet another year of rambling success!
