This garden is definitely not what we were expecting. It was a random assortment of mostly exotic trees, including to my surprise, invasive weed species. There was even a little plaque in front of one such tree explaining that it was an invasive weed! We were expecting to see native and naturalised trees and only saw a handful of these. There were strange feature areas such as the the 'Banana Patch', which consisted of five or so plants and my favourite the 'Ancient Foundation Stones', which was a collection of rocks. We assume they were the foundations of a native Hawaiian dwelling.
The only good thing I can really say about this overpriced garden was that there is plenty of parking and that there is a nice sea view from the picnic area.
All in all, this place would benefit from some interpretative signage and true ecological restoration, which means removal of invasive weeds and progressive replanting with natives.
