Flaxmere Garden, one of the NZ Gardens Trust, "Gardens of National Significance" has its beginning over fifty years ago on a North Canterbury sheep farm. Bodly designed to frame the surrounding mountain vistas, today Flaxmere Garden is a place of peace and tranquility for all to enjoy. Situated near the Southern Alps, Flaxmere has developed into a stunning example of a garden that evolves with the seasons, splendid throughout the year. The abundant use of water has enabled the creation of five ponds that ensures a wonderful bird life. Flaxmere is also a wonderful setting for weddings and other social occasions and accommodation for visitors to stay and linger in the various garden settings is also provided.
