Nestled in the cool shadows of the big man himself, this will be one of many pleasant discoveries during your visit to Fiji.
This could well be one of the best-kept horticultural secrets in the whole of the South Pacific. 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.
Now open to the public, 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.
But the highlight of the tour has to be the orchids themselves. Carefully tended and well displayed, these fragile flowers are breathtakingly beautiful when seen in the golden light of early morning.
