Christchurch Jazz band ‘The Curio Club’ will keep adding to the celebration playing for visitors all afternoon.

There will be garden games set up around the expansive Gunyah Estate Gardens. The gardens of Gunyah Country Estate were established by its original owners, Wilfred Hall and his wife, Millicent Potts in 1912 when the homestead was built. Now restored, Gunyah’s gardens take up 12 acres with expansive lawns, mature trees, NZ natives, exotics which includes original stunningly coloured and perfumed azaleas and rhododendrons from Thomas Potts’ days, the old and new orchard, a gazebo, a folly, avenues and more.
