AAA Editor Notes
Allerton Garden, 4425 Lāwai Rd., 2.5 mi. w. of Spouting Horn, once was part of the private estate of a Chicago businessman. Before that, it was a retreat for Hawai‘i’s Queen Emma. All tours include a 15-minute bus ride into the garden. Daily tours include a mildly paced 1-mile walk among tropical foliage, fountains, waterfalls and statuary. A Sunset Allerton Estate Tour also is offered.
The 3.5-hour Discovery Tour offers a behind-the-scenes look at conservation and research projects, Allerton Garden's riparian area and McBryde Garden's rain forest trail and waterfall.
Visitors should wear comfortable walking shoes and bring mosquito repellent, rain or sun protection and bottled water. Camera tripods are not permitted. Allow 2 hours, 30 minutes minimum for the guided tour.
