Otari Native Botanic Garden (Wiltons Bush)

160 Wilton Road
Wadestown, Wellington
Otari Native Botanic Garden is the only botanic garden in New Zealand dedicated solely to native plants. If Karori Sanctuary is the dream, this long established reserve is the reality. Wilton's Bush is the only substantial piece of virgin native bush left in Wellington City.

The Otari Native Plant museum owes its existence to New Zealand's greatest botanist Leonard Cockayne.

There are well interpreted displays and a self-guided nature trail taking 30 - 60 minutes as well as longer walks. You can also picnic with the family and run about.
Barbeques are provided.

Otari is on a bus route 14 at 30 min intervals from the Lambton Interchange. (Route 14 runs from Kilbirnie to Wilton via Roseneath. Oriental Bay and Thorndon.)
