This tree is definitely worth a stop. It is incredibly beautiful! It was one of our historical stops on our Savor Santa Barbara Food Tour and well worth it. Plus, a Pullman train car is right behind it - one more tucked away historical site.

We went searching for the tree. The map here shows the pin in the wrong place. It is on the other side of Route 101 toward the water. Highly recommend and worth the walk.

All this is a tree in the middle of the road, but it will take your breath away. I didn't have this planned on our itinerary for Santa Barbara, but we had some time to kill before dinner, and I found this attraction on Trip Advisor (thank you) and decided to pay a visit! I'm so glad we went because... More

This fig tree is one of the largest that I have seen. View from a distance to enjoy the volume of this tree. The tree however does some times have people sleeping in the root system, It is not in the best part of town and Homeless do frequent this area, Worth a view but be careful.

I think the Moreton Bay Fig is stunningly beautiful tree and an asset to Santa Barbara. As a tourist attraction, I'm not so sure. This wouldn't be my top draw for visiting Santa Barbara as a tourist, but is a nice one should be be visiting the Santa Barbara waterfront or downtown Santa Barbara in general.

Certainly a site to see if you have the time! There is no cost, so stop by if you can! A large, interesting old tree!

Yes the Moreton Bay Fig Tree reminds me of my country in all of its splendour and magnificence. I can shade a whole herd of cattle. Amazing trunk and roots system and beautiful to photograph.

Well its a big impressive tree right by the train station off State Street. So it will only take a few minutes to stop there on your way to the beach. But don´t go out of your way if you´ve got a tight schedule.

Let me start by saying that I'm a huge nature lover but dang was this tree cool. It was huge and quite the site to see. Don't miss taking a peek if you are in Santa Barbara. I'm adding a photo of my husband and I standing in front of it when we were on our Segway tour just to... More
