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

Beautiful Spot to have a Picnic

Even though it seems a little pricey, it is worth it for all the the flora you experience while in there.

This place is not all that it is cracked up to be - and the $20/person entrance fee (or thereabouts) is absolutely insane. Avoid, avoid, avoid and keep on driving. This park literally had NOTHING noteworthy and we regretted instantly handing the front-gate guy our money. Just keep on driving!

Small family-owned and operated garden. The garden trails are nice, and not too long to get around. Lots of curated species of plants, many they started from seed. This is a lovingly curated garden from the heart, I can tell. Peaceful and quiet. Nice, covered picnic tables with incredible views. We ate our picnic lunch here for our family of... More

My lady friend, her sister, and I (all 50+) visited this attraction as part of our visit to the western half of the Hana Highway area. We had already visited the Hana Highway several times over the past 13 years and were looking to change it up this time, try something different, and smell the roses a bit more---rather than...

I hadnt read any reviews of this stop along the Road to Hana, but my wife was keen to visit. The $15 per person fee seemed awfully steep at first, so my initial perception was negative. However, after strolling the grounds for an hour and taking in the views and all the botanicals, I must say I'm glad we stopped.... More

Look it is a beautiful place but .... If you're on the road to Hana you will see spectacular views for free the whole way thru. I cannot believe I paid $15 person to see what I ended up seeing the whole way to Hana. I see that there are a ton of complaints about the $. There are other... More

We turned off to visit this privately owned area. It was beautiful and had very clean bathroom facilities and walking paths. We walked around and enjoyed the plants, trees and scenic views. They have a lovely little art gallery where you can purchase gifts and souvenirs. The cost to enter is $15 per person.

This garden is located just past mile marker 10 on the road to Hana (Highway 36). It is totally worth it. It wasn't very expensive - I think $15 per car. These are the verdant tropical gardens where the opening sequence of Jurassic Park were filmed. This 26-acre park was designed to restore the area's natural ecosystem. It contains 500+... More

Great selection of plants and views. Several waterfalls and the rock from Jurassic Park as well. Rainbow Eucalyptus abound and walking paths are well marked and easy to navigate.
