Located in the heart of Dunedin, the Dunedin Chinese Garden is New Zealand’s only authentic Chinese Garden. As a Garden of National Significance it has a distinct character being designed using genuine Chinese materials and being crafted by a team of artisans from Dunedin's sister city of Shanghai. The Garden features hand-made wooden buildings, tiles, bricks, lattice-work and hand-finished granite paving stones.
Travel through the Garden at your own pace and find unexpected glimpses of sculpture, heritage and beauty. From pavilions to zig zag walkways, ornamental plantings and rock structures, your special occasion deserves to be held in truly unique surroundings. The Garden is perfect for weddings, cocktail parties, Christmas parties, or conference openings.
The Garden offers your guests a chance to unwind and discover the contrasting nature between traditional Eastern and Western garden styles. The traditional high garden wall encloses you and your guests in your own private sanctuary with the rest of the world seeming far removed.
Transport yourself to a very special place. The Courtyard is perfect for an intimate wedding, dining experience or cocktails with the intricately detailed inlaid stone paving, authentic rocks and symbolic plantings. This private space is centrally located between the Tower Room, Tea House and Gift Shop. Offering views across the Heritage Precinct, the Tower Room is a novel location for board meetings, business get-togethers, or when you need a couple of quiet hours to meet and work through heavy agendas. Free parking at the door makes this an easily accessible option.
