Maui Nui Botanical Gardens

Gardens in Kahului

For botanophiles interested in native Hawaiian plants, this garden on the grounds of a former zoo has a wealth of knowledge. An excellent new audio tour ($5 or free with admission) brings it to life. Don’t expect the exotic tropicals that dominate most Hawaiian gardens; do expect dedicated staff. Staff also lead personal guided tours from 10am to 11:30am Tuesday to Friday by appointment (suggested donation $10).
