Once a retreat of Hawaii’s Queen Emma, the cliffs of Lawa’i Valley still cascade with her favorite deep-purple bougainvillea. Pass into a majestic garden of beauty, a masterpiece of landscape design, and a natural showcase for tropical plants on the Allerton Garden Tour.
Behold the seemingly ancient Jurassic trees. Stroll through outdoor ‘rooms’, beside rippling pools and dramatic sculpture. Drink in the sights and sounds of fascinating plants, vibrant flowers, and flowing water. Taste the flavor of Europe blended with he spirit of Hawaii.
Allerton Garden is tucked away in the secluded Lawa’i Valley. Tour check-in is at NTBG’s Southshore Visitors Center, a short distance from the Valley rim. Your tour includes garden transportation into and out of the valley, along with a spectacular scenic route.
