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.

A lovely stroll and a peek at some beautiful flora at the gardens. Entry isn't cheap at 20 dollars a head, but it was a nice little walk.

Yes, they do open on a Sunday. Phone them on +679 834 8314 to arrange a tour for your preferred time as otherwise they are usually at 2pm - but they don't get people every day so I am sure they would appreciate knowing you... More
