LOVING AUTUMN: More than 300 people took the opportunity to see Gisborne’s Eastwoodhill Arboretum dressed in its best colours of the year. It was the second year Eastwoodhill has taken part in the Botanical Gardens Australia and New Zealand Day, giving people free entry for the open day. Organisers said it was a huge success. “Even though it started raining people still came. It was just beautiful,” organisers said.
