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 at the Garden of Eden after being told by friends not to miss it. We spent about 2 hours there and thought it was fantastic. The views of the Keopmka Rock and the Puokokamoa Falls are fantastic. And, the trees and flowers are phenomenal. The garden is lush and has both common and unusual flowers and trees -... More

We will never forget visiting this garden. The flowers are beautiful, the picnic spots are amazing and the upkeep of the gardens are terrific.

They charge $15 per head in a vehicle to see the beauty of Maui which you can see for free. Don't bother with this tourist trap on your way to Hana.

The place had beautiful views, but besides getting to see the peacocks (which weren't even a main attraction), this place was nowhere near worth the $15/person fee they charged us. Sure, they had some really nice plant life on display, but again, it's not really worth the money. There are plenty of other beautiful views along the road to Hana... More

Everything was well done and beautiful but so is everything on the way to Hana and Hana itself and beyond and so while it was beautiful I'm not sure it was worth a stop. Maybe for garden lovers only (which I am not one).

This was our stop on the road to Hana. Fantastic selection of tropicals and mini botanical venues e.g. Bamboo forest, water falls etc. Fabulous vistas and lots of photo ops. The place really absorbs attendees well so you don't feel crowded. My husband and I brought a picnic which we enjoyed at one of the many tables throughout. We had... More

We saw the sign and decided to stop glad we did. It does cost to go in but there are miles of trails and scenic overlooks you can stop at. It is also the best way to see where one of the scenes from Jurassic park was filmed

If you like flowers, trees, and Mother Earth, then Maui Garden of Eden is for you! There were so many different types of plants, it was amazing. It was all beautiful. We loved it!
