The ultimate Instagram experience - wander the cherry blossoms in full bloom, right in the Hutt Valleys backyard
Blossom Valley is an annual spring celebration sure to put the spring in your step as you explore the 14 acres of garden with New Zealand’s highest number and density of mature cherry blossom trees in the one place. For just a short amount of time each year at Aston Norwood Gardens in Kaitoke, Upper Hutt hundreds of cherry trees come alive creating a canopy of pink blossom.
The event is carefully scheduled around the natural blossoming of the trees, with data from previous years informing the date selection. While the team at Blossom Valley do their best to ensure the ultimate blossom experience the timing of the bloom is up to mother nature.
After a wildly successful introduction in 2021, the popular Blossom Valley After Dark experience will be back bigger and better in 2022 with additional paths set to be lit up. Spend an evening wandering the trails through beautifully lit paths and gardens to see the blossoms a whole new light!
With some great food and drink options available, picnic not only under the cherry blossoms, but the stars as well!
