Garden · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Allerton Garden is a gem in the crown of Hawaii National Tropical Botanical Gardens. Designed by Queen Emma of Hawaii and shaped by time, the garden is shaded by large rainforest plant life and tropical fruit. Flowers, ginger, and palms flourish and fill the area with sweet smells. All this natural beauty is complemented by sculptures, fountains, and manicured lawns inspired by European gardens. Take a self-guided tour through the gardens, and stop at the visitor center for literature and to ask the staff any questions. By using our Poipu day trip website, you can arrange your visit to Allerton Garden and other attractions in Poipu.

  • Just when I think it can't possibly get anymore beautiful here in Kauai, along comes another spectacular slice of paradise! There were multiple places at Allerton Garden that had native plants new to everyone in the group. David, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and told us what each plant was and its origin and usage. The staff at Allerton are very passionate about conservation and you can tell that the grounds are lovingly cared for. I highly recommend this garden oasis.
  • Wonderful tour--our teenagers loved it! Amanda did a great job touring us through, giving us tons of information about the different plant and tree species and the history of the garden and Allerton family. Highly recommend this tour.
