Allerton Garden: Small Group Tour

1. Allerton Garden: Small Group Tour

Embark on a relaxing and informative guided tour of Allerton Garden. Discover a tropical paradise with decades of history dating back to the 1800s.  Allerton Garden extends along the banks of the Lawai Stream where the valley narrows before opening onto the coast past the Spouting Horn. Along the way, you might even encounter koi fish, large bullfrogs, chickens, and ducks. This picturesque setting has been used in a number of films and TV shows including Pirates of the Caribbean, Magnum PI, Starsky and Hutch, and Donovan’s Reef.  Trek through winding pathways and marvel at towering rainforest trees providing you shade from the warm Kauai sunshine. You can’t miss the tall curving roots of the Moreton Bay fig trees made famous in the movie Jurassic Park.  Walk through a grove of swaying golden bamboo, a flower garden, and tropical fruit trees nestled amongst bronze statues and water features. Here the focus is on landscape design but your guide will be sure to point out important species including varieties of palms, flowers, and gingers.
