The Montreal Estate is located at an altitude of 1500 feet, on the Island of St Vincent in the Caribbean. Banana plantations and rain forest surround the estate which occupies 7.5 acres and is open to the public. Visits are arranged for visitors from cruise ships, the 45 minute journey providing an excellent opportunity to enjoy the rich scenery of the Island.

The gardens contain a wide range of tropical plants and shaded areas devoted to Anthurium and red ginger production for cut flowers. There is a densely planted colour garden and a formal planted area. Superb views of the coast, plantations and tropical rain forest are available.

The lower part of Montreal Estate connects with the rain forest. Carefully constructed paths enable the visitor to gain easy access to this unique environment and the river running through it.
