Wilson’s Mill: Almost 150 years of Unique, Canterbury Heritage
Wilson’s Mill Garden is respected as one of the finest and most expansive gardens in New Zealand. This South Island garden is brimming with trees, shrubs, roses and flowers, all within a superb landscape design that includes a lily-clad lake, willow tree lined stream with bridge, a large oak orchard, a tall hedged Secret Garden, a bog garden, plus many more features.
Kelvin and Lesley Finlay are the proud owners of Wilson’s Mill Gardens at Ohoka, Kaiapoi, North Canterbury and have been putting their own stamp on the House and Grounds.
Enjoy the gardens tranquility as you wander through the 4.8 hectares of sheer beauty. Whether it is the picturesque lake, or the homestead surrounded by water, garden borders and towering trees, the Wilson’s Mill Garden experience is one that defines paradise.
Wilson’s Mill is named after an original flax mill, the flax now replaced by deer, cattle and alpaca in neighbouring paddocks. Today the Wilson’s Mill house with its neo-classic style is of great interest architecturally giving another dimension to the visit.
