Orton Bradley Park at rhododendron time

November is a great time to visit Orton Bradley Park, because that is when the rhododendrons are in full bloom. The garden contains a comprehensive collection of New Zealand hybrids.  It is especially colourful at this time of the year.  The rhododenron garden is within the 653 hectare Orton Bradley Park at Charteris Bay, just a 30 minute drive from Christchurch, over the Port Hills.  (More photographs of other park activities are here.)
