You'll have the chance to feed ducks in the duck pond, see the peacocks strut through the gardens, and view hundreds of lowland rainforest species of flowers and shrubs. Walk along well-maintained gravel trails throughout the garden, where you can stop and take pictures with waterfalls as your backdrop. Please note that there is no direct access to the nearby waterfall or pools from the garden.

  • Absolutely worth the stop. Plan on an hour if you really want to see a lot of cool trees and flowers, and birds. Oh, yeah, this is supposed to be about plants, but did I mention the bird collection?  more »

  • The grounds are very well kept. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit on 2/3/2018. Entry fee was $15 a person, which we felt was well worth it. While the views of the ocean and waterfalls are great, those views are not the main reason you should visit this place. Stop for the horticulture. My wife and I both love learning about new types of trees and plants. We come from Minnesota and have never seen many of the things growing at the Garden of Eden. There are plaques in the ground with names and interesting descriptions. The rainbow eucalyptus had the most beautiful bark of any tree we had ever seen. Peacocks are always fun to see also. Stopping at the Garden of Eden was a great break as we drove back from Hana.
  • Breath taking. Very spacious and relaxing and beautiful. Take the time to speak with the woman selling the admission, as she has great advice on what is most impressive to see depending on the time of year and the weather conditions. I still can't come to terms with how colorful those trees are - be prepared to be reminded of how amazing nature can be.
  • Really enjoyed the gardens. Well worth the drive down the Hana highway. Nicely laid out with great walkways and scenic views. Great assortment of flowers, trees and other plants. A must stop if you can find the time. The admission is a little high but not sorry we went.
  • This was a good rest stop to stretch and walk around but was very expensive and felt more like a tourist trap. It is neat what they did but if you're just looking for a bathroom and a stretch drive a mile more to the next park where you can do so for free. We were here during the winter season, I can imagine it being more impressive during summer.
  • Lots to see here. Stopped to use the bathrooms which are worth the price of admission. Lots of great plants and views. Could spend a couple of hours here. Nice bathrooms. Well kept area. Friendly ducks and birds. Lots of parking and picnic spots.
