The Tasmanian Arboretum reviews
This is well hidden little gem lovely gardens and we saw a platypus in the first 5 minutes of setting off on our walk we spent an hour walking around but you could spend a lot more time to see all... more »
A group I belong to go to our Arboretum each year near Australia Day for a picnic. This year we had good weather and a lovely time. The home made ice cream is amazing more »
My wife and I living in Devonport Tasmania are members of the Arboretum. It's an honour to be a member of this beautiful living tree museum. Amazing care by multiple volunteers in the daily running of the Arboretum. Platypus a guarantee regardless dusk and dawn. If you haven't seen a platypus in the wild this is the place to be. Abundant bird life and if you are lucky echidnas too. Fantastic photo opportunities all year around. Kiosk and multiple picnic facilities. Amenities wheelchair friendly. A must see when you are in the Northwest of Tasmania.
My husband and I are returning from a month of travel in Tasmania. We were fortunate that another visitor mentioned the Tasmanian Arboretum as it was not listed in any of the travel guides I read. It is a lovely tree filled arboretum with a centrally located pond which is inhabited with platypus. A blind on the bank allows one to observe these very unusual creatures which we were able to do. Plus there is a small cafe on site where tea and scones can be enjoyed on a rainy day if desired. We were well tended to by the caretaker who also staffs the cafe. This is an undiscovered gem and well worth a visit.
