Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden

The resplendent Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden (KFBG) is a fantastic destination for families. This picturesque farm boasts exciting trails, verdant greenhouses, waterfalls, pools, gentle streams, landscaped gardens with artful pavilions, vegetable terraces and even an animal shelter.

Aiding the farm community   

Set over 148 hectares of lush green mountains, KFBG was opened in 1951 by the Kadoorie Brothers to empower poor farmers with skills training and agricultural input. The venture now encompasses agriculture, horticulture, animal husbandry, biodiversity and conservation.

Attractions at KFBG

Animal lovers and children will love the Parrot Sanctuary, Monkey Haven, Streamlife Display, Raptor Roost and Native Mammal Display. Garden lovers can enjoy leisurely strolls through the Butterfly Garden, Cactus Greenhouse, Fern Walk, Orchid Sanctuary and the Walter Kerr Gardens. The adventurous can seek out eight kilometers of hiking pleasure across the mountains and valleys.

This is a quiet, serene haven of peace. The best way to enjoy KFBG is by taking their advice to heart: Take only photographs and leave only footprints.
