There is free street parking nearby so that you can park and walk a few steps for some great views of this magnificent fig tree. This is a great photo stop while in Santa Barbara. You can see this tree while driving by on the adjacent freeway. You just need about 10 minutes for this stop. Pictures don't to justice... More

Great, big, old gnarly tree. You don't see many like this around. The canopy of the tree provides so much shade.

We came to take some pictures of this old beautiful tree. There is one like this in the San Diego area, and this tree is a nice picture close to the amtrak station.

Moreton Bay Fig Tree is historical and physically impressive, a vbast and beautiful living thing. It is also well-known as a magnet for transients and homeless people, so it is a bit odd to see it listed on Trip Advisor. One supposes that driving by might be a 'thing to do' forthe uninitiated, but doing so is often sobering.

If you've never seen one then it's a nice place to see a Moreton Bay tree up close. It's next to the train station, you can easily see it from the freeway as you whiz past. Used to be popular with the homeless.

It's a tree. It's REALLY old, and it's REALLY worth seeing. It will take you at least fifteen minutes to take in the amazing roots, canopy, trunk. This is a WOW, not to be missed.
