Hamilton Gardens was voted International Garden of the Year in 2014. With over 20 themed gardens you will be entertained the entire day.
The Hamilton Gardens is a massive property right along the Waikato River which runs through the city. The focus of the gardens is to replicate the historical gardens of specific civilizations around the world.
Parking is very easy as there is a massive lawn in front of the entrance and there is no entrance fee for the gardens. Aside from walking the paths through the gardens there is a cafe overlooking the small lake as well as a large open lawn for musical performances and even food trucks on the weekends.
Properly looking at all the different gardens will take you quite some time, so if you can swing it I would plan an entire day for it or split it up between a few days. There is so much information and beauty to look at so no need to rush through the unique property. Enjoy!

Hike Passage Peak
Australia / Passage Peak Trailhead Parking
If you're looking to catch the sunrise make sure to get up nice and early, as the walk from the trailhead to the summit could take up to an hour and a half (depending on how strong your coffee was).
Hike the Yangie Bay Trail in Coffin Bay National Park
Australia / Yangie Bay Carpark
This hike is short, but there are tons of opportunities to take in beautiful views of the bay and we saw tons of kangaroos! It was close to dusk, so this is a time when they're typically quite active.
