Terracotta Gardens is on the hillside
above the township with a view across the Bay towards Waitangi and
across a bushclad valley where morepork and kiwi call at
night. A path descends the slope through beautiful gardens to

township, ferry wharf and foreshore or over the saddle to the
excellent swimming beach and spectacular view of the Bay and outer
islands at Long Beach.
Road access to the house is from Oneroa
Road opposite the Pomare Road intersection. A stroll down
Pomare Road brings you to Matauwhi Bay and the yacht club
while Oneroa Road extends along the ridgeline and gives alternative
walks to Long Beach, the township and to Matauwhi Bay.
Russell has a semi-tropical coastal climate, generally warm and moderate,
