Description

Allerton Garden (Lawai Kai) lies between the Pacific Ocean and the McBryde Garden in the Lawai Valley, on the south shore of the Hawaiian Island of Kauai. It is a garden paradise, transformed through time by the hands of a Hawaiian Queen, by a sugar plantation magnate, and most significantly by an artist and an architect. The endless possibilities found in this dramatic topography led to the creation of this masterpiece of garden art.

A series of garden rooms unfold between the Lawai Stream and the cliffs of the Valley. The sound of water is in abundance in pools, miniature waterfalls, and fountains. Statues grace this former estate and resonate with a European influence. Towering rainforest trees (the famous 'Jurassic trees') with tall curving roots grow near bronze mermaids, a grove of swaying golden bamboo, a cut-flower garden, and tropical fruit trees. Here the focus is on landscape design.

Guided tours are offered daily.

All tours begin with check-in at NTBG's Southshore Visitors Center, which is located in Poipu across from Spouting Horn. Visitors board a tram and experience a scenic coastline ride as the tram enters the Lawai Valley. They disembark on the Valley floor and begin their guided tour. From start to finish at the Visitors Center, the tour lasts approximately 2-1/2 hours.

A special sunset tour which takes in some other areas of this former estate and includes refreshments at sunset is offered a number of days each week. Separate fee structure.
