Garden of the Sleeping Giant

He may have been known to mid-20th-century TV audiences as defense attorney Perry Mason and wheelchair-bound police detective Ironside, but in real life the late actor Raymond Burr was an orchid expert. His private estate in Fiji, now a public rainforest garden located at the Base of Sleeping Giant Mountain just 10 minutes’ drive from Nadi, features more than 2,000 kinds of Asian orchids and Cattleya hybrids. Open daily, with morning hours only on Sunday.
