Auckland Garden DesignFest  2024 


The Auckland Garden DesignFest was created in 2011 as a joint initiative between the Garden Design Society of New Zealand and Rotary Newmarket . The biennial event (only happens every two years) raises the profile of garden design, creates a sustainable platform for designers (a lot of whom are our members) to show their work and craft, and proceeds from ticket sales go to chosen charities, a lot of whom benefit children and young people. We welcome Dove Hospice & Wellness who have come on board as joint organiser for the 2024 event.

Our chosen charities for the 2024 event are Dove Hospice & Wellness, Garden to Table, Youthline, OkeForest & Bird NZ and Rotary Newmarket.


Earlybird All Garden Entry tickets are available now for just $60* (limited to the first 500 tickets). All Garden Tickets provide entry to all gardens for the whole weekend. Available online at


Auckland Garden DesignFest are delighted to be using Humanitix as our 2024 ticketing partner. If you've not heard of Humanitix before, they are an Australian based hassle-free event ticketing company that puts humanity first. 100% of profits from booking fees go to charity. Humanitix has transformed over $7M of those annoying booking fees into education, healthcare and more for humans all over the world. By purchasing your AGDF event tickets through Humanitix on our site, you too will be helping.


Our partnership with Dove Hospice & Wellness means that tickets will also available from all 8 Dove Hospice Shops across Auckland - Newmarket, Epsom, Remuera, St Heliers, Meadowbank, Mt Wellington, Panmure and Glen Innes. So if you’d prefer to purchase a hard-copy ticket in person and do a spot of op-shopping at the same time, this is the best option for you.

This event would not be possible to 'put on' without the help of over 180 volunteers. You can help the team now or join us during the event weekend for a 'shift' on a garden gate checking tickets and wristbands or inside a garden. We'd love your help! To find out more please head to the Volunteers page on the Auckland Garden DesignFest website.
