The NZ House & Garden House Tour is a self-guided day, showcasing 8-12 houses in the respective areas, in addition to the 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.
