Pukeiti Domain is famous for its rhododendron collection, set in a 360 ha rainforest property located between Mt Taranaki and New Plymouth. Beautifully landscaped with stunning displays, it is a great location to explore.

 

For motor caravanners who enjoy gardens, you could easily spend a couple of days exploring all the well maintained walkways.

 

There is a very nice cafe, and you are able to park overnight in the parking area. There is also a sheltered extension to the car park, off the main road, which you can also use.

 

We were there on a beautiful sunny afternoon, visiting with friends. With only an hour or so to get a feel for what was there, we're definitely planning to return.
