The Fernery at Pukekura Park in New Plymouth is among the oldest of its kind in New Zealand . Old tunnels that connect the some of houses have been carved from the clay banks. Children love the adventure of discovering hidden tracks and getting lost - all within a safe confined space . The old wooden glasshouses were replaced some years ago with state of the art glass roofs and automatic heating controls that open roof shutters . This is a pleasant place anytime of the year.
