A peaceful garden with natural bush and easy walks. An enjoyable couple of hours and the complimentary cold drink at the end was welcome. Cost was $18Fj Rather than joining a group tour it is easier to find a taxi driver and negotiate a price. We also went to the Hindu temple on the same trip. This had a charge... More

This is a beautiful place to see orchards and gorgeous plants. You can either stroll through yourself or there is a friendly guide to tell you about all the plants. After the walk they give you a fruit punch served on a nice covered terrace. If you are renting a car and go there, be aware that the sign on... More

The orchids are beautiful and well cared for. We especially enjoyed the vistas as we hiked around the property. Not world class, but relaxing and lovely.

The reason maybe to keep out unwanted invasive species like birds or animals. Only a complimentary drink at the end of the visit n... More

We got brought here on a private tour of Nadi by Tours By Locals with Ryan. This place was amazing to walk around and take in some stunning sights. The orchids are beautiful and definitely a highlight. Our visit was topped off by a complimentary free fruit juice which was delicious and cooled us down!

The garden is a place to spend a few hours enjoying Fiji's Tropical splendour. Leisurely stroll, listen to birds, and enjoy. Acres of Orchids and flowering plants. Founded by Raymond Burr in 1977. It is Fiji's largest orchid collection.

Had a lovely afternoon before catching a plane wandering through the gardens. Particularly loved the huge variety of orchids on display. This collection belonged to Raymond Burr who left it to the Fijian Community.
