Overview

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

While in Hawaii with my husband, we took a jeep, grabbed a map, and set off for nowhere. We ended up on the Hana Highway- a destination of sorts itself with many opportunities to pull over and take in the vistas or other hidden coves....More

The place is not bad, but $30 for two people and a long distance view of a water fall? Several other, better views later on the trip and free. Not worth the money, maybe $5 a piece.More

Hello. I'll be travelling with my 10 year old daughter. Is there enough there to keep kids interested? How long do you recommend allocating to get a decent (but not completely thorough tour)? Are the falls here any better than on the road to Hana? Thanks!

How long did you spend at this arboretum? How long would you recommend allotting for this attraction on the road to Hana? We are planning a large group trip on the road to hana which takes a very long time, and we want to stop here but are concerned about scheduling.

Allow at least 30-45 minutes. Photographers and those choosing to picnic may wish to stay longer. Many of our visitors choose to go no further as some experience difficulty with the Hana Hwy. Thank you for you interest and... More
