“A worthwhile visit”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

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 that they share their knowledge, enthusiasm and love of native plants and birds with the public. A really worthwhile visit.

“A testament to effort and vision”
Reviewed 14 January 2013

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 views are excellent, the garden design is thoughtful, quirky and extremely well executed, and those that know their gardening will recognise the supreme long-term effort that has been put in to get this garden to this standard. The owners are to be congratulated on what they have achieved.

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!

“More than we expected”
Reviewed 28 December 2012

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 transformation you have wrought with buckets of "retirement" sweat.
