Taradale is a semiformal garden situated five minutes drive from Darfield township and half an hour from Christchurch.

Roses, perennials, rhododendrons, natives and spring bulbs are enclosed in a restful setting of larger trees and bounded by box hedging and expansive lawns.


Dog trial demonstrations are available and our stud sheep can also be viewed.

The Homestead is always available to visitors in adverse weather conditions where they will be welcomed to the warmth of a log fire and country hospitality. Our previous garden was “Peak Hill Station” in Lake Coleridge where we hosted garden tours for the last 24 years.

Open: All year by appointment
Admission: $5.00. Discounts for community groups.
Amenities: Toilets, Snacks, Picnic Area. Coach Parties welcome.
