The visit to Inverawe was almost accidental, recommended by Hobart's tourist information. We found a huge and varied hillside garden created from scratch by dedicated retiree enthusiasts from Sydney. Exclusive focus on sustainable planting of native species. Very interesting and informative and admirable. $12 entry was a snip and excellent value.

A great experience if you appreciate native plants and fabulous views. The owners have worked extremely hard to turn a wasteland into a beautiful haven for birds and native wildlife. The plantings are interesting and the quirky figures include information,comic statues, poems and sculptues. The owners are on hand for enquiries about plants and wildlife and the views over the...

We visited at the end of the tourist season in late May. The welcome was a little forced, there wasn't much to see, it was a little kitsch with 'talking' displays of stuffed figures and lots of strange and gaudy artworks. But the overall experience was dull and we left after 20 minutes. Good on them for all their hard... More

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!
