Not very far away from Auckland, Alphra Lavenders could be a stop for your 1 day trip or weekend trip to Hamilton. The season is from late November to late February if memories serve me right. I would recommend calling to check with owners first whether it's opened for the day or not. Great for photos and free to enter.... More

Been meaning to visit for 3 years. Finally got there and was amazed that this is a free thing to do in this day and age. Smells so amazing! Really enjoyed hearing the bees buzz and taking some fun photos.

Went with my Mother as she was keen to visit again and purchase some essential oils. Unfortunately it was the end of the season so no real fields of lavender to look at. The little shop has a lovely range of products and the owner is a lovely,friendly, knowledgeable person. She even gave us a few lavender sweets for free... More

It is really beautiful place during lavender season. The colours are spectacular. Surprisingly there is constant flow of visitors so can be busy at times. There is small shop which offers different lavender products. Owners very accomodating as they let us use their house toilet (for my 6 years old daughter) keep in mind that it was exception and there... More
