We didn't realize it, but ended up walking right by the Moreton Bay fig tree accidentally (so decided to stop and take photos)! It's a beautiful big tree (and old). You can't get right up close to the base because of fencing, but if you're nearby, definitely worth a look!

We visited the tree on our way out of town, thought the kids would just look out the window, wound up parking and everyone getting out. Amazing to see in poerson

Neat massive tree. Worth stopping by to appreciate it's age and size. No more than a 10 minute stop.

My kids were in awe at how enormous this fig tree was! You really have to see it in person to admire it's size.

You have to see it. Pictures aren't even worth a thousand words here. Too bad some unscrupulous folks have defaced part of the trunk. Shame on them.

Cute story behind the tree and gorgeous spot for family picture. A short drive from Stearns Wharf. Free parking (for first 75 minutes). It is located by the Amtrak Station on Chapala Street.

This is truly an amassing sight - the photos do not do it justice. You can almost feel all of the history just standing next to it. There are many natural wonders all around Santa Barbara, but this is one of Mother Natures finest. You'll surely want to get a 'selfie' photo here!

I would not have realized how huge this tree is and barely paid attention to it. You need to get up close and really look at it, doing so is amazing. One gets caught up in the beach scene but this is worth taking the 15 minutes to go look at.

Absolutely magnificent tree. Incredible shade and beauty combined. Situated in the middle of a park and just invites a family picnic or photo shoot.
