The Centre’s main facilities are located on a former cocoa-coffee-citrus plantation, previously known as the Spring Hill Estate. This estate has now been partly reclaimed by secondary forest, surrounded by impressive rainforest, where some original climax forest on the steeper slopes have a canopy of 100-150 feet. The whole effect is one of being deep in tropical rainforest.
Asa Wright Nature Centre welcomes day visitors during the hours of 9am-5pm. Guided walks with our professional naturalist guides are conducted daily at 10:30am and 1:30pm. The walk lasts about 1.5 hours. Day visitors can relax on our Jade Vine Terrace or Verandah, which has a spectacular view of the Arima Valley and the many species of birds.
