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

Even though there are some good reviews, but we were there 8/30/17, they charged $15 per people and the view is so so. Along the road to Hana, too many views are similar but free. We just stay for 30mins and left. We think it...More

We pride ourselves on being one of the most affordable family activities on the island (group/children discounts). The Garden offers more than 2 miles of well maintained walking paths, hundreds of botanical labels, beautiful overlooks onto waterfalls, valleys, and vast ocean views. We have covered...More

The Garden of Eden is an absolutely stunning stop on the Road to Hana. It is best seen by parking and hiking the various paths throughout the garden. If you remain in your vehicle, you will miss the beauty of this arboretum. The hike is...More

Over the years we've come to the GofE (mile marker 10.2 on Hana Highway) several times. A very peaceful, beautifully maintained arboretum -- lovely trails, friendly staff. One of the hidden treasures of Maui. It does cost $15/pp but for a couple hours in the...More
