We travelled to Smithton mainly to see these gardens, without realising that they were closed on Sundays. However, I rang early, and Lorraine was kind enough to invite us to visit after 3 o'çlock. There were a few other visitors when we arrived. The gardens and the native forest are wonderful. It was a delight to see their group of peacocks - some white, and others the more usual colour. We also noted wrens, and spotted a couple of fairies hiding in the forest. The Huon pine, and the 500 year-old "Öld Man Tree" were impressive, but the ferns steal the show. The only place I've seen with more beautiful ferns are the Dandenongs.
