Aloha and welcome to Mauis Garden Of Eden Arboretum. An Arboretum is a park dedicated to trees. We also feature hundreds of lowland rainforest species of flowers,shrubs,and ground covers as well.We began this project in1991 with 30 acres of densely overgrown jungle, now after investing more than 20yrs of physical labor and 2 million dollars, we have created one of Hawaii's most visited botanical gardens. We have many plants found nowhere else or are uncommon to Hawaii, such as rare Amazon fruits and medicinal species, endangered hardwoods, spice, exotic nut trees, ferns and so much more...A botanical Disneyland with over 2 miles of maintained graveled walking trails...A truly educational facility with over 700 plants botanically labeled. Try to allow at least 45 minutes to explore.We feature great views and photo opportunities but no direct access to the waterfall or pools.If you are only interested in restrooms (we now have improved facilities) You can do so for free 2 miles down the road.A portion of your entry fee is donated to the nature conservatory. The cost to keep our gate open averages $1,000/dy so we sincerely thank you for your support,,,especially those who have contributed beyond our entry fee. Most botanical gardens have teams of volunteers and use chemicals to curb costs. Our entire staff are well paid professionals, and we are almost entirely a chemical free park. Thank you for visiting, we do take your comments to heart

We stopped here on our Road to Hana trip even though it wasn't a must do. We pulled in and no where does it tell you the price to get in. Well by the time you pull up, and there are cars behind you, they tell you $15 per person! Not per car! It cost us $30 to walk through... More

Even if you don't go all the way to Hana - do go to this delightful garden. We spent some time talking to the owner and strolled around for about an hour. Good view of the falls from the top.

I wouldn't suggest this for elderly people as the trails are steep. I can't say how the whole garden looked as we didn't want to hike to many steep trails. What we saw was average to a little better. The waterfall was distant and somewhat hard to photograph. There were better waterfalls by the highway that were free. This attraction... More

Lots of native plants....high above the ocean Waterfalls are stunning...if you have knee problems or trouble with steep walks, then you might want to check it out before starting the hikes.

These gardens are laid out in a short drive with walks off to the side. That path was well-planned. I fed the birds who were willing to come very close to get their treat. We saw the waterfall and overlooked an expanse of valley. The paths are lined with flowers. The peacocks near the art store were a special surprise.... More

My daughter and I stopped on our way to Hana and I am glad we did. This is a wonderful place to walk around and learn something about the flora of this beautiful island. It is the creation of one individual and it is an amazing effort. You park your car and walk around on well groomed trails. There are... More

This is a beautiful arboretum to visit. The cost is $15/person. I believe that it may be more worth the price for more of a true arborist or bird watcher, rather than a casual tourist looking for a pretty site to visit. It may also be more worth the cost if you walk the trails rather than drive through. (Both... More

this garden is so beautiful. A lovely place to have lunch with amazing views. So many varieties of plants, a waterfall and a Jurassic Park view. Don't miss this. Most people say its on the way to Hana but it is a destination unto itself.

The road to Hana is very busy. It is difficult to find a parking spot in the middle of the day along the usual stops. The cost of $15 apiece was worth it for the two of us. Quiet, well maintained, flowers in bloom, benches throughout. Bring your own picnic and drinks.. Perfect view of the waterfall..
