We went here last year, but I assume it is the same. This is a beautiful botanical garden and offers nice cool weather. A great respite from the beaches.

My wife and I visited the garden and spent well over an hour strolling the grounds. Lots of up and down walking so be prepared but the variety of plants was fantastic. Find out more if the history of the gardens and you'll be even more impressed.

We saw this after sunrise on the crater. It's a nice garden area. They give you a map of the grounds, all the trees are labeled. Takes 1/2 to. 1 hr. They have birds, fish, ducks, and a chameleon.

These 8 acres of gardens do not merit a10$/adult entry fee but if you are in the area and want to stretch your legs, you may find these gardens a charming stop. If you are expecting something like the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens on the Big Island (they charge only 15$!) then this place will be a big disappointment. If... More

We stopped in on our way to the crater at the Haleakala National Park. This was a privately owned estate now opened up to the public for viewing. Many of the plants are beautiful but for the price we found this was a small property for viewing and although lush, more of private garden of planting a bit of this... More

This is a very nice stop if you are in the Kula area to just unwind and enjoy the large collection of tropical plants that the owners have cultivated over several decades. The gardens are nicely laid out with a main path that extends up the hillside a few hundred feet and many side paths to the left and the... More

Absolutely beautiful gardens on the slopes of Haleakala. Has a huge variety of plants that grow in Hawaii along with information on where they originated from. The layout follows the contours of the land with lots of nooks and crannies to check out. Make sure you pick up the map from the front desk! Place is well kept and the... More

Fairly average place for photographing flowers and birds. They have put lots of work into place with only a few flowers in bloom. Recommend only going if in area to see lavender farm as well. Good for Families with small kids. They would like fish and bird ponds.

Kula Botanical Garden is a lovely garden on a hill below Haleakala National Park. The self-guided tour takes about an hour and a half and meanders through lush vegetation and flowers. When we visited in early February, the Protea flowers were in full bloom. We were treated to so many different varieties! Orchids were abundant, as well. Viewpoints look out... More

We were there when the Proteas were in bloom as well as many other flowering plants. Beautiful! Only time I've ever seen a Nene (nearly extinct indigenous goose) on Maui. Well worth the $10 admission.
