Where is Jurassic Park Hawaii?


Jurassic-Valley-Oahu

Jurassic Park Hawaii and The Main Filming Location is found at "Jurassic Valley" on The Island of Oahu. Jurassic Valley also known As Kualoa Ranch, is located on the north-eastern side of the island of Oahu, 20 miles away from downtown Honolulu. The ranch is a private nature reserve, and, on top of being a stunning travel destination, it's a must-see for cinephiles.

Only 3 miles from the ranch, you will find the Ka'a'awa Valley where, apart from Jurassic Park, other movies were filmed, such as Lost and Godzilla.

History of Hawaii's Kualoa Ranch


Kualoa Ranch is a 4,000-acre working cattle ranch and private nature reserve located on the windward side of Oahu and boasts 500 heads. Established in 1850, it is still one of the relatively untouched parts of Hawaii and will help you imagine what Oahu looked like back in the day.

In 1850, Dr. Gerrit P. Judd, an American doctor, acquired 622 acres from King Kamehameha III for $1300. Later on, ten years to be precise, he added another 2,200 acres to his estate. In 1880, the doctor’s son acquired additional acres for a total area of about 4,000 acres today. The ranch is nowadays still owned by the Morgan family, descendants of Dr. Judd.

This part of Oahu has been considered sacred to Hawaiian people since the 13th century and was reserved solely for royalty who were learning how to rule Hawaii. In fact, the Kamehameha ancestry, successors of King Kamehameha the Great, resided here.

Today, it welcomes visitors from all around the world, and thanks to their support, Kualoa Ranch was able to stay away from the over-development.

The terrain is made up of dense, stunning, tropical rainforest surrounded by incredible green cliffs plunging into the sea. With so much beautiful space to admire, Kualoa is an excellent location for outdoor activities such as ATVing, horseback riding, ziplining, etc.
