It was a pleasure to host Pär Ahlberger, the Swedish ambassador, to Waikereru. He was fascinated by the 1769 Garden, with its plants collected by Joseph Banks and Dr. Carl Solander (favourite student of the great Swedish naturalist Linnaeus) during the Endeavour’s visit to Tairawhiti in 1769.
A haven for native birds, plants and animals.
