Lovely to wander around these gardens that have been created by the owners over several years of painstaking work. They met us at the entrance, explained the history and the layout of the gardens and left us to wander the paths. A must for anyone interested in native plants. The garden is a work in progress and we were delighted... More

This private native garden is only 20 minutes out of Hobart, and is well worth a visit from anyone who has an interest in native gardens. We visited in January 2013, when SE Tassie is in the grips of a significant drought, and this did impact on the health, survival and floral display, but don't let this deter you. The... More

If you're interested in native plants and irds, this is the place for you. Hundreds of different plants, 94 bird species, and spectacular views. The owners are charming and introduce you to their wonderful property. We had tea on the terrace after walking around the 20 acres - a haven with birds everywhere. Come and see for yourself!

Having read about Inverawe we dropped in along the way of our scenic drive along the South East coast. We didn't really know anything about it, and we found a delightful surprise nestled in a beautiful part of Tasmania. What an inspirational garden, thanks to Margaret and Bill for sharing such a wonderful spot with us, and congratulations on the... More

We spent a couple of hours strolling through these lovely native gardens. Beautiful views and a thoughtfully laid out native garden complemented some good bird sightings - from forest birds to waders and even raptors. Well worth stopping for a few hours.

What a beautiful place! We spent a magical time strolling through these wonderful gardens planted on a steep hillside that sweeps down to the water. As well as enjoying the beauty of forest, garden, grassland and marsh, as visitors from the UK, we learned so much about the plant species of Australia and Tasmania in particular. We had a warm...

We visited without knowing what to expect and were greeted by Margaret and Bill who answered all of our many questions and let us explore their gardens. Beautiful views and a diversity of native plants, completed our visit with sculptures, history and poetry. Definitely worth a visit for the botanist and artist at heart.

An important undertaking, beautifully done, with an informative and charming approach to information on the flora, fauna and history of the 22 acre site. Take your walking shoes and plenty of time for there is much to see in the extensive grounds. The owners are very friendly and allowed us to take our dog on a lead. We wished we'd... More

We visited during a day's cruise stop in Hobart and wished we had more time to enjoy it. It is very close to a noted birding spot (Peter Murrell Reserve), and the two locations (easily reached from Hobart) compliment each other well. While Murrell is fairly unimproved, Inverawe represents some of the finest work in garden stewardship this biologist and... More
