Thelma Retreat


In the pristine south of Tasmania at the end of a country lane there is a 1 acre English Style garden full of fragrance and colour. Take a walk through the terrace garden.

Discover roses, lavender, lilies, bulbs, shrubs and ornamental trees. Here many small birds have made their home and bumble bees feast on nectar.

A Teahouse in this peaceful garden provides the perfect place to relax while enjoying a Devonshire Tea or other homemade cooking.

A comfortable self-contained apartment is also available to rent. A great place to unwind.

Garden and Teahouse Open: September to end of April

Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday 9am – 5pm

Garden Entry: Donation

Teahouse: Booking Essential
