The Emu Valley Rhododendron Garden is a remarkable private garden built and operated by volunteers, in the north-west of Tasmania. The 11-hectare property is located 8km south of Burnie, off the Ridgley Highway and features over 24,000 select rhododendrons and companion plants from around the world, creating a spectacular display of blooms between late August and November, and striking Autumn foliage colours from March to May.
The tranquillity of this lush environment can be enjoyed year-round, with three pristine mirror-like lakes and expansive views from our strategically placed pavilions. The birdsong of diverse bird life and encounters with native fauna such as platypus and echidna are another unique aspect.
In addition to the hybrid rhododendrons familiar to gardeners, we also feature many wild species of rhododendrons growing in geographically defined areas of the garden, that reflect the plant’s origins – from Asia, across the Himalayas to China, Japan and North America.
Our tea room is open daily 10 am – 4 pm, so come and savour our famous Devonshire Teas, light lunches and home-made treats.
Entry is $15 Adults, $12 Concession and children are free.
