Ellerslie Flower Show

New Zealand's answer to the famous Chelsea Flower Show in the U.K. saw over 65,000 attendants during 2007 in Auckland and has been increasing in popularity since 1994 when it was first held in Ellerslie. The show is filled with multitudes of the glorious colours found in nature artistically presented through various floral arrangements and designs. In 2008 the show moved from Auckland on the North Island to Christchurch on the South Island. The flower show is held in the city's Hagley Park.
