Allerton Garden is one of five gardens managed by National Tropical Botanical Garden (NTBG), a non-profit organization working to study and save tropical plants everywhere. Named as one of National Geographic Traveler’s “50 Places of a Lifetime,” Allerton Garden played a vital role in the rich history of the Lawaʻi Valley.
Boasting a landscape design with a series of breathtaking garden rooms that feature exotic plants, art sculptures and aesthetic water features, Allerton Garden is a paradise stilled in time. The late Queen Emma of Hawaii transformed the gardens in the 19th century before leasing the Lawaʻi Valley land to the McBryde family. It now operates as a landscaped haven, intriguing visitors and locals alike with its guided tours, beautiful garden rooms and fascinating Hollywood history.
Self-guided and guided tours are available; reservations are required. Book online or by phone. Garden admission is per person and age category. Trams to the garden leave regularly form the Southshore Visitor Center.
