Garden of the Sleeping Giant

Visit The Garden of the Sleeping Giant Fiji


In the shadows of Sleeping Giant Mountain in the Nausori Highlands, the Garden of the Sleeping Giant is a horticultural paradise, bursting with flowers, lily ponds, and lush rain forest. Founded in 1977 by actor Raymond Burr, it’s now one of Nadi’s most popular attractions and home to more than 2,000 varieties of orchids.

The Garden, which contains a vast collection of 30 to 40 varieties of magnificent Asian orchids and Cattleya hybrids, was once the private collection of the late American actor Raymond Burr.

The garden is a wonderful spot to spend a day just wandering along the canopy-covered boardwalk, through gorgeously landscaped lawns, across calm lily ponds complete with trickling fountains and croaking frogs and finally into the heart of a dense rainforest.

The highlight of the tour has to be the orchids themselves. Carefully tended and well displayed, these fragile flowers are breath-takingly beautiful when seen in the golden light of early morning.

Visitors can explore the Garden of the Sleeping Giant independently, following the boardwalks through the rain forest, or learn more about the exotic plants and flowers on a guided walking tour. The garden is a popular feature of Nadi sightseeing tours.

The gardens showcase more than two thousand different kinds of orchids, covering 20 hectares. For an entry fee, you can wander through the lush and fertile plantation to your heart’s content.

The garden is open daily all year-round, but it’s only open during the morning on Sunday. Floral displays vary from season to season, but the most vibrant periods occur from June to July and November to December, when orchids are in full bloom.
