If it’s your first time to Cameron Highlands Flora Park, you might think that you can drive to the park directly much like with other attractions in Cameron Highlands.
But that is not the case:
Where To Park Your Car
Instead of keying in the exact address of Cameron Highlands Flora Park, what you want to do is to key in the location of the open-air car park.
Because this is where the park will collect its visitors via pick up trucks that serve as shuttles to the Cameron Highlands Flora Park.
Once you’re on the truck, you’ll soon know why it’s better to use their vehicles then your own!
On Google Maps and Waze, the name of the car park is Flora Park Parking.
After you turn past the entrance of the Rose Center, there’s no missing the huge banner indicating the rather sophisticated (and massive) Flora Park Parking lot.
Flora Park Parking:
- Location: GC35+48, Brinchang, 39000 Brinchang, Pahang
- Opening Hours: Daily from 9am–7pm
Note: You’ll be happy to know that there are toilets at this parking lot. With a box for collecting fees of 50 cents too.
Parking here is not free and there is an hourly rate after the first 2 hours. You can use Touch N Go to pay as they have an electric car park barrier (much like the ones you see in malls).
Entrance Fees For Cameron Highlands Flora Park – Ticket Price 2022

Facilities At Cameron Highlands Flora Park
Don’t underestimate the size of this park!
If you take your time to stroll through it leisurely, a visit can easily stretch past 2 hours. Especially if you stop at every corner for photos!
There are 2 sections to this park – an indoor section and an outdoor section. They do give you a map of the park at the ticket counter, but we didn’t find the map necessary (or particularly useful).
You don’t really have to worry about a lack of toilets in the park however. As there are toilets in each section.
As well as a couple of cafes if you feel peckish:
Most notably, The Views Café at the very top of the park.
Plus, if you need to catch your breath or just take in the views from a comfortable seat, there are benches scattered around the park too.
Things To Do At Cameron Highlands Flora Park
1. Ride A Pick Up Truck
Kids will definitely find the quick (less than 5 minutes) journey up (and down) from Cameron Highlands Flora Park a highlight of a visit!
Parents and grandparents might think otherwise – our tip is to hold on to the railings inside the pickup truck and to empty your bladder thoroughly at the toilets at the car park before getting onto the truck.
It is bumpy and chances are, you’ll rub shoulders with the person next to you.
2. Walk Among Petunias
Petunias of every shade bedeck the first section of the park – this is the first place you will see when you pass the entrance barrier after the ticket counter.
For those who adore flowers, it is extremely hard to resist taking photos of the beautiful arrangements on the ground and above!
3. Stroll Along The Boardwalk
If you choose to continue along to the indoor section of the park, look for the long boardwalk that winds past the petunias.
This is where the park will transition to other flowers including walls of purple flowers and rows of yellow and red flowers.
4. Sit Down To An Exclusive Picnic
If you continue further on, you’ll reach a very pink grove of sorts. This is where there are wooden platforms set up with different snap-worthy picnic sets.
Note: There’s no food included in the rental of any of these picnic stations.
5. Get That Perfect Instagram Shot
Continuing deeper into the indoor section of the park will take you to one notable photo corner in Cameron Highlands Flora Park:
It’s a giant rope swing that will comfortably sit up to 3 skinny girls. The background is rows of delicate looking flowers (we think daisies) of pink and white, alongside walls of purple flowers and living pillars of red flowers.
We do highly appreciate that the park relies on a lot on the natural beauty of flowers for decoration rather than tacky looking statues.
Other extremely photogenic corners to look out for at Cameron Highlands Flora Park include the following (most are in the outdoor section of the park):
- The viral white staircase on a hillside of pink flowers
- A hexagonal wooden bench on the same hillside
- The infamous glass staircase to heaven at the top of the hill
- A giant nest platform right at the top of the park
- And lastly, an artificial yellow ginko leaf tunnel beside The Views Cafe
6. Have Puku Ice Cream
Yes, you don’t have to seek the main Puku stall at Kea Farm Market to try Puku ice cream. The ice cream is sold right above the petunia garden at Cameron Highlands Flora Park too.
Apart from other sweet and savoury treats like waffles, Korean pastries, and cookies.
There are plenty of seats and tables all along the walkways above the indoor section of the park. The walkways take visitors into the outdoor section of the park.
7. Climb To The Top
The picturesque hill covered in pink flowers is the main reason that many visit Cameron Highlands Flora Park.
There is no shade here and if you plan to climb to the top, it’s not a walk in the park (pun intended) if you have bad knees or are not very fit.
But you’ll be rewarded with a bird’s eye view of the park and its surroundings. As well as more photo opportunities.
8. Chill At The Views Café
Besides, if you do manage to make it to the top of the park, there is one more café where you can get a bite to eat and a refreshing drink to quench your thirst after the climb.
The café menu is small and while there are no main meals here, the drinks menu has a number of unique items that should pique your interest.
9. Enjoy Aerial Views Of The Park
After replenishing your energy levels at The Views Café, you can climb on a bit further to the very top of the park.
You can see how far you have climbed and how large the park is (and they’re still in the progress of expanding it).
Tips (And Things To Note) For Visiting Cameron Highlands Flora Park
- Wear comfortable shoes, a hat and sunscreen
- They use disposable cups and straws at the cafes (something to know if you’re trying to go zero waste)
- They don’t allow pre-wedding photo shoots (without permission) here
- Don’t pick the flowers!
- Most of the park is not wheelchair-friendly
- They will check that you have tickets when you board the shuttle to leave the park
If you still have time to spare after visiting Cameron Highlands Flora Park, here are a couple of places in the same area:
1. Kea Farm Market
Kea Farm Market is the hands-down the busiest location in Cameron Highlands. On weekends and public holidays, the jam is frankly frustrating and intimidating.
But there are plenty of little stalls to stop at. Many of which sell souvenirs, fried food, cacti, flowers, and fresh local produce.
The main Puku ice cream stall is also here.
2. The Sheep Sanctuary
The Sheep Sanctuary is also one of the newest attractions in Cameron Highlands. Because of its proximity to Kea Farm Market, it does get crowded.
Note: They have a maximum visitor limit of 50 pax at a time
Everyone (kids and adults alike) who haven’t seen a sheep before can take the opportunity to take photos of, hand-feed, and pet the adorable animals.

3. Raju’s Hill Strawberry Farm
Raju’s Hill Strawberry Farm is one of the most established strawberry farms in Cameron Highlands.
And while admission is free, picking strawberries here is pricier (RM30/0.5kg) than at other places but their strawberries are large and not overly sour.
Note: You can’t pick their strawberries after 4:30pm
And once you pick your strawberries, you can enjoy them with other strawberry-related treats at the on-site café. Their carrot cake is also worth having!
Do go early to have your pick of strawberries (and parking).

We think Cameron Highlands Flora Park is a must-see if you really like flowers and are in good physical health to fully explore the park.
It is a great alternative if you find Lavender Garden in Cameron Highlands a tad too commercial.
And if you think the admission fee is pricey, we can imagine that it will only increase as the park adds on new sections! A cheaper alternative is Agro Market Cameron Highlands. Or Green View Garden in Cameron Highlands.
