Owner description: 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

It was $15 per person but the place is so beautiful, so well maintained and so organized it is well worth the fee to spend some time here. The paths are great and well maintained and all of the plants are marked so you know what you are looking at. Our favorite was getting up close to the painted eucalyptus... More

The day we visited it was drizzling but we still thoroughly enjoyed walking around through the different areas of the gardens. You can drive right into the gardens and park at various spots along the way or just go to a central parking lot and walk from there. The views are lovely and the huge range of native plants is...

The admission was $15 a person, and they only accept cash. We spent about two hours there walking the trails and taking pictures. There are some absolutely beautiful outlooks and some unusual plants and trees. The ducks and geese were fun to see. The gardens were maintained beautifully. Wear good walking shoes, as some areas are a bit steep and... More

We came to Maui with our 7 year old and 7 month old son's, so I knew we couldn't make it all the way to Hana. I picked this as our turn around spot. It was fun for everyone. We took tons of pictures of all the cool and different plants. Bring bug spray though. We forgot ours at home... More

We decided to stop here during our CD guided Road to Hana tour. The garden is very beautiful, but somewhat expensive at $15 a person. Gorgeous views with beautiful flowers and wildlife, but some of the other stops on the way were just as if not more beautiful.

We stopped to eat our picnic lunch here. Beautiful and well-maintained gardens. Highly recommend stopping. Worth the admission price if you have the time to explore the entire garden.

Make sure to take tons of picture since the views will be very nice. You can also take food and picnic out at one of their picnic tables. Make sure you stop by at the gift shop and purchase a painting.

In a word: breathtaking. On a purely practical note, G of E came into view just as my stomach started to rumble and, although G of E does not serve food, we had been advised that it provides several beautiful places for a picnic lunch from home, each with its own gorgeous view of this exquisitely maintained, garden and/or different...

Gorgeous Views, Great Photo Ops! It was pricey but so is everything in Maui. If you are on a budget don’t stop here because there are a ton of other things on the Road to Hana for free that you will love just as much and some of them more. If you are not sticking to a tight budget then... More
