Ka'a'awa Valley
(Van joyride bowl)

This property, as well as much of the surrounding land reaching to other valleys, is owned by Kualoa Ranch. This valley is informally known as "Kualoa Valley" has served as filming location for Lost on numerous occassions as well for feature films such as Godzilla, Jurassic Park, and Pearl Harbor.

The van's joyride bowl is very near "Hurley's Golf Course". See also the van launch point farther back in the valley.

This location is within Ka'a'a'wa Valley (informally known as Kualoa Valley), which is not open to the public.

These photos were taken while on Kos Hummer Tours, which provides access to these private locations on its off-road tours through the valley, and also provides a Lost filming locations package on request.

Notes: The van's joyride bowl is directly across the dirt access road next to "Hurley's Golf Course"

These shrubs are not to be found at the filming location, and were likely added by the Lost film crew.
