Garden of the Sleeping Giant Tours

While this orchid-filled garden is now open to the public, there was once a time when the valley was owned by the actor Raymond Burr. Best known for his role in Perry Mason, Burr purchased these 50 acres at the base of the Nausori Highlands and proceeded to plant over 2,000 different varieties of colorful orchids. Today, the gardens serve as one of Fiji’s most spectacular floral displays, where wooden boardwalks weave through a valley that’s dripping in flowers and ferns. Bring a picnic for a leisurely lunch looking out over the multiple lily ponds, or pay a small, additional fee to visit the actor’s home. For those who want some extra info on the various species of orchids, local guides are available to accompany and tour you around the gardens, and their services are included free of charge along with the general admission. Even if you aren’t a huge fan of flowers, the serene setting can be easily appreciated regardless of your horticulture past, making the Garden of the Sleeping Giant one of Nadi’s most popular sights.

Practical Info

The Garden of the Sleeping Giant is about 15 minutes north of Nadi at the base of the Nausori Highlands. Entry fee ranges for $3.50-$7.50, dependent upon child or adult, and is open 7 days a week with shorter hours on Sunday. The site is best accessed by car and is four miles north of the Nadi Airport. Visitors can either drive themselves or take an inexpensive taxi.
