Fishermans Bay French Farm Gardens

Fishermans Bay Garden on the Akaroa Peninsula provides an opportunity to visit an extensive garden of natives and exotics. Enjoy wandering through the garden with outstanding views of the Pacific coastline. And enjoy the sounds of native birds, seals and penguins in the bay below.

Fishermans Bay is an idyllic garden filled with bright colours and varied textures. The garden sits against breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and is framed by the stark beauty of Banks Peninsula. A series of garden areas offer differing planting themes, reflecting their New Zealand setting.

This garden is a must visit for garden lovers or anyone wanting to see a special part of the Peninsula while in the Akaroa area.  Your hosts Jill and Richard Simpson have turned a farm garden in a rugged setting into something special. It offers a lush combination of flower beds, natives and green lawns that still remember the garden’s traditional farm heritage. Many native birds and wildlife revel in the garden and the protected native forest below.
