Kualoa Ranch
-Moli'i Gardens
(Macadamia Farm Outlet)

This fishpond on the windward side of O'ahu just east of Kualoa Beach Park is owned by Kualoa Ranch, who also own the Lost filming locations of Ka'a'awa Valley and the adjacent areas.

Notes


The property is owned by Kualoa Ranch, and access may be obtained via a 1) "Tropical Farms" Macadamia Nut Farm Outlet Hawaiian culture tour (just drive into the outlet and sign up, the tour is called the "Ali'i Tour"), 2) a larger Kualoa Ranch package, or via 3) Kos Hummer Tours. Options 2 and 3 also can provide more activities in Ka'a'awa Valley, and transportation from Waikiki if necessary. Option 1 includes a boat ride on the fishpond itself. Although there is a small retail shop, the main attractions here are the grounds and the wonderful staff who give cultural demonstrations and a tour of the gardens and fishpond; don't come here solely expecting any special insider products or prices on macadamia nut gifts. The 1 hour "Ali'i' Tour" is a bargain and is full of activities, and you'll see many of the Lost filming locations including the flower gardens, a boatride on the fishpond, and a fire knife demonstrate by Chief Sielu. The Ali'i Tour runs from 10:45am-4:00pm 7 days a week. Rservations at (808) 237-8508 or (808) 781-2474.

Kos Hummer Tours has filming locations and off-road tours through the Kualoa Ranch properties, and also provides a Lost filming locations tour package on request that easily provides the deepest and most comprehensive access to Lost filming locations within these properties..

From Honolulu/Waikiki, take H1 West to the Likelike Hwy. Take Likelike through tunnels, then move to the right lane to take Kahekili. Continue straight as it turns into Kamehameha Hwy (83). Continue past Waiahole Beach Park. Before the vegetation clears at the big left bend to Kualoa Regional Park, you will see a small white fence in the jungle on your left with the sign for "MACADAMIA Farm Outlet". See photo at the bottom of this page. Enter this driveway and park.


Thank you to Beth and Paul, who took photos of the submarine while on the

Lost Virtual Tour

The hills in the background look very unlike those in Hawai'i.

The hill is actually the windward side island known as Chinaman's Hat (Mokoli'i in Hawaiian, meaning "Little Lizard"), with the ocean horizon obscured by the thin but verdant borders of the fishpond depicting the beginning solid land. This island is also visible in the scene from Lost filming location Waikane Pier.

This stucture also lies on the Moli'i Gardens property.


The cantina logo is barely visible in the scene from Lost.

The line art designs from Eko's flashback are still visible

The front entrance used for Lost is no longer remains in its complete form. The inside has been repainted as well.

The corrugated iron back wall no longer exists.

Moli'i Gardens has several flower gardens. The background mountains also match.

The plantings may rotate, but there was red ginger to be found.


Similar trees are in the area, such as this one next to the Nigerian Bar location, so it is possible this exact tree is at Moli'i Gardens.

Look for this driveway with the "MACADAMIA Farm Outlet" sign while driving along Kalaniana'ole Hwy., just before





Park here at the main visitor's center.

Book your tour here at the Coconut Stand. Prices are inexpensive and you get many activities including the fishpond and gradens tour, as well as cultural demonstrations.

There are actually several docks along the fishpond coast. There is a fire-knife cultural presentation at the stage next to this dock when you take the Macadamia Nut Factory tour. The tour also goes out into the fishpond, as well as through the grounds of the gardens.
