2020 LOCATIONS AND DATES - To be announced!

In the 2019 season we visited the following locations:
Oamaru, Christchurch, Tauranga, Wairarapa and Auckland.

The NZ House & Garden House Tours typically run over the months of February and March, so be sure to keep some space free in your calendar over these two months!

All our tours takes place on a Friday from 10am to 4pm

NZ House & Garden Tours are self-guided days, showcasing 8-12 houses in their respective areas, in addition to a Tour Hub.
Two weeks prior to the tour date, we email through the official tickets which include a start house (selected when tickets are purchased), house addresses, maps and important tour information.
The houses may be viewed in any order you like, but tour-goers must start at the house allocated to them on the official ticket to avoid congestion at houses.

The Hub has become a highlight on our tours - open from 9.30am, the Hub is a space where tour-goers can enjoy food, refreshments, enter amazing competitions and find plenty of ways to support the charity. You can also look forward to a warm welcome from our family of sponsors, along with the chance to meet our wonderful staff from the magazine, have a chat with our Editor, Sally Duggan and hear more about the great work Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand are doing. 

We offer tour goers an exclusive on-day subscription offer to NZ House & Garden magazine.
The 2020 subscription offer will be announced at a later date.
