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.
