it has large boardwalks that you follow from one orchid patch to the next and it is set in a tropical setting and at the end you get a refreshing fruit juice

Big collection of orchidees . When we visited the garden one part of the course was closed due to the risk of slipery
But we discovered a lot of new flowers.
Very quiet place
We arrived early before the rush of tourists by full buses

Great chance to see a large collection of orchids in a stunning garden setting as you wind your way along paths bordered with forests, ponds, and mountain peeks. The staff was superb and very kind. We had all our kids with us, and there were some great places along the trail for them to run and relax. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

I was hoping there would be something that would be connected to Raymond Burr. The track around the garden is not very long so it is all over quickly. Loved the tropical juice I got when I arrived and after the tour. Very tranquil and pretty.

Though it was raining we still went to the gardens (since we only had the one day there to do it), and I am so glad we did.
Beautifully kept and a great collection - many orchids (they say >2000) planted and covered walkways - all in bloom - most are not native to Fiji - but still beautiful as a collection.
Also the trail areas give a nice idea of the local flora - little ponds with water lilies and palms and more.
