Pukekura Park's Fernery consists of three glass-topped caverns excavated into a hillside. Being below normal ground level, they create a temperate environment suited to display a wide variety of indoor and outdoor plants from around the world.
Access the Fernery and Display Houses from the Horton Walk Entrance or Fred Parker Lawn in Pukekura Park.
See the layout of the Fernery and Display Houses with this plan.
The Fernery and Display houses date back to the early 1900s.
With a collection of over 50,000 plants, there really is something for everyone.
There is only a team of three full time staff and one part timer that maintain the Ferney and Display Houses.
