The highlight of the government garden is the government house. The design is quite stunning, the garden is nicely done, however, compared to your other botanical gardens, maybe not as much wowing effect. Great to have a quick walk around if you are also visiting the Polynesian Spa next door

Very nice place to have a walk in the afternoon or evening.
Even the museum is close can still enjoy its arquitecture and take some photos.

Worth a walk around but the museum is closed at the moment but the grounds are lovely also try the pool with two hot pools in the park it is very reasonable priced.

We enjoyed our walk around the government gardens. The geothermal steam areas are marked off with fences and interesting to see. There is a rotten egg smell that you get used to. We had gone to go to the government building with the museum and was surprised to learn it has been closed due to earthquake damage since 2016 which was not mentioned in any of our guidebooks
