World Botanical Gardens and Waterfalls is part of Botanical World Adventures in Hakalau on the Big Island of Hawaii. Botanical World Adventures also includes Zip Isle Zip Line and Segway of Hawaii Off Road Tours.
Situated on Highway 19 just 16 miles north of Hilo, the gardens nestle between the slopes of Mauna Kea and the Pacific Ocean.
Come and have a true Hawaiian eco-adventure and enjoy the wonder of nature at the home of peace and beauty.

Zip above and through the rainforest canopy on our ultra-safe but exciting zip line.
Ride through the gardens and rainforest on a Segway.
