The Giant’s House

23 years ago Artist and Horticulturist Josie Martin began creating what is now a highly significant New Zealand attraction – The Giant’s House. Once heralded as “the happiest garden on earth”, colour, whimsy, and creativity is abundant throughout.

Blending vegetation with art, the space is undeniably joyous – a celebration of life in all its forms. Now a Garden of International Significance (NZGT) with 6 stars, The Giant’s House with all its mosaics, sculptures, artwork, and ceramics is a unique experience to be enjoyed by all, Tile Addicts and non-Tile Addicts alike.

It’s a place to fully explore, with treasures such as a mosaic grand piano bursting with life and a large grounded ship to be found. It’s a little trip down the rabbit hole, with strange figures dancing or hanging about and curious creatures at every turn.
