Welcome to

Te Māra Rākaunui o Aotearoa
National Arboretum of NZ at Eastwoodhill

We Protect Trees

We are an arboreal ark, a safe haven for threatened and endangered trees. Our mission is centered on conservation education and research.

Organisational response: COVID-19 Protection Framework transition

(aka Traffic Light System)

The Eastwoodhill Trust Board have reviewed the governmental advice into the COVID-19 Protection Framework and have determined that from Friday 15 December 2021 visitors are welcome to enter the Arboretum regardless of their vaccination status.

A My Vaccine Pass will still be required for all accommodation guests, guided tours. Organisers of events will need to adhere to the Protection Framework. Please contact us to discuss any event or gathering.

Areas of close proximity, such as the shop, toilets and interactions with other guests/staff will require all guests to wear a face covering. ALL visitors must scan in with either the NZ Covid Tracer app or leave their contact details.

This decision will be reviewed regularly as further advice is gained and/or when the region transitions into differing framework levels.

Further communication in relation to this will be made via our website and social media.


We’re on a mission to grow the National Arboretum over the next 100 years, and we need your help.
