Loved visiting this garden. The tour guide was most informative, explaining the fantastic orchids we were looking at and the care needed to look after them. Plan to spend a couple hours there if you want to take it all in.

There aren’t a lot of tourist areas around Nadi so this is worth the visit. A pleasant walk through the jungle with ripe mangoes and flowering plants throughout. Could use a bit of upkeep but with the $9Fiji entry cost.

Enjoyed a walk through the beautiful and amazing orchid area then the tropical garden area with lovely lily pond. The cool drink at the end of the walk was a nice touch.

A Must to visit. You feel like to be in a rainforest with old and big trees, hundreds of orchids and many grasses and other flowers. The elk through is about one hour and really worth.
