Event background

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 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.

The event remains the most important fundraiser for the Mangawhai Kindergarten , assisting them to provide quality facilities, resources and equipment to our youngest community members –  all free of charge! You can read more about the kindergarten and the valuable service they provide to local families with young children on our BENEFICIARIES page.

2021 Garden ramble

13 & 14 November 2021

Planning for the annual Mangawhai Garden Ramble 2021 is advancing, and we still plan to go ahead (Covid Levels willing) with this annual kindy fundraising event.

This year sees us join with a new principal sponsor – we are delighted to welcome Wyatt’s Landscape Supplies and thank them for their support of our event in 2021 and into the next 3 years! Additionally, REAL team Real Estate company (Marlene Dragicevich & Dennis Emsley) have agreed to create signs and install these for us for the same 3 year term.

We have had to make some changes because of Covid, namely all of the 17 gardens on display (including a record 4 for night viewing) are located in the “Northland” boundary area. Covid precautions will be maintained with sign in / QR codes, sanitiser provided, social distancing, masks as and where appropriate).

We must thank the Garden owners and those working behind the scenes to enable this event planning to proceed.
As normal, we expect ticket sales to commence over Labour weekend (please follow updates on our facebook page).

Garden Ramblers and lovers, we would really appreciate your support!

Join us at the Garden Ramble!
