Gwavas Garden Homestead

Morning tea, afternoon tea, lunch and tours

Gwavas Garden is the ideal setting for your group to have morning, afternoon tea or lunch. We provide a relaxed atmosphere where you can enjoy your meal as well as take in the five generations of history associated with the homestead and garden. We have coach access right to the homestead.

We are happy to put together a delicious menu and tour to suit your budget and time frame.

Discover some of the Hawke’s Bay pioneer history by taking a homestead tour with Stuart, and for those who like a little exercise, a guided tour of the garden. You are also able to explore the garden at your leisure. A tour of the homestead will take between half and three quarters of an hour and a tours of the garden can take anywhere from an hour to two or three days!

For active walkers with sturdy footwear, a guided tour of the Puahanui bush just behind the homestead can also be arranged. Allow about an hour and a half for the tour. This bush has been saved by generations of the Carlyon and Hudson families and contains some impressive specimens including huge Totara of between 600 and 900 years of age.

We are happy to put together a delicious menu and tour package to suit the size of your group, your budget and timeframe, so please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss the options available.
