The Arboretum is a 66 hectare nature reserve near Devonport in Tasmania’s North-West.
Only a few kilometres from Devonport but a million miles from care, the 66 hectares of landscape Arboretum, which was founded in 1984, offers you the opportunity to walk among collections of woody plants from around the temperate world, especially including many of Tasmania’s plants.
Set in a peaceful and beautiful valley, you may see some of Tasmania’s wildlife, such as swift parrots and platypus. Cultural and natural heritage combine in the Limestone Heritage Walk, which is free if you self-guide on the walk, and links the geology with a century of human activity contributing to colonial and national development. Two hour guided walks are available for a reasonable cost, and can be booked online.
The Arboretum offers three picnic shelters, 2 general shelters, a platypus observatory and a bird hide on the shore of Flounders Lake.
The Tree Park Kiosk offers light refreshments and audio tours, and is operated by volunteers and opens between October and May.
Eugenana is 15 minutes’ drive (11 kilometres/7 miles) South of Devonport.
