Our usual Self Guided Tour of 22 acres of colourful landscaped native gardens, is still available ($12 entry, $10 concession). On arrival for the self guided tour you receive a personal introduction to the garden and a colourful map to guide you. Interpretation signs set the garden in its historical and social context. Poetry, sculpture and whimsy add to your enjoyment. Take tea on the terrace (for a small extra charge) and contemplate tranquility.

When you visit Tasmania, you'll want to see Tasmania's other great gardens - here's the Head Gardeners suggestions.



All our workshops are designed to help you create or enhance a garden, of any size, large or small, that is at peace with the environment and does what good are gardens have always done: lift the spirits. All our workshops are on Sunday of the dates below, start at 1.30pm, finish up around 4.00pm. We start with a "getting to know you chat" and then move around the Inverawe garden, discussing features and techniques as we go. Afternoon tea and printed notes are included. Your presenters, Bill and Margaret, created Inverawe from what was wasteland and each have decades of teaching experience. Each workshop costs just $30 per person. Bookings are essential (ph 6267 2020)

Lee Wilkinson of Hobart took two of our workshops - read her comments here!

"Plan a Native Garden" covers simple soil analysis, site analysis, how to choose plants, basic landscaping and much more.

"Create a Bird Friendly Garden" shows you what you need to know to attract birds into your garden. Birds create colour, drama and sound and help out by fertilising some plants and munching through insect pests.


Plan a Native Garden, Sunday 12 September, and repeated Sunday 10 October.

Create a Bird Friendly Garden, Sunday 26 September and repeated Sunday 17 October.
