We were taken on a tour of the gardens by the owner whose vast knowledge of the palms in particular made this an interesting trip. Needs a reasonable level of fitness as the terrain is very steep.

Definitely worth a visit if you like flora and fauna. The highlight is that the garden has almost all varieties of palm trees found all over the world.... currently 289 species! Nice labelling and informative pamphlet for the stroll through the garden.

A short bicycle ride from Savusavu town is the lovely gardens. You have call ahead to get in and 1-1.5 hours is enough to wander around. There are over 200 different species of palm trees. Nice view from the top of the stairs.
