This delightful secluded valley north of Wellington via State Highway 1 is truly a hidden treasures. Many of the valley's residents are craftsmen or gardeners and there are numerous places to stop and discover at your leisure. Moss Green Gardens, Burnard Gardens and Efil Doog Garden of Art are all gardens to enjoy, the latter as much for its remarkable sculptures as for its extensively planted grounds. If you have the children with you, Staglands Wildlife Reserve is a marvelous wildlife park with good picnic spots and plenty to keep the whole family entertained.
