  • At the end of our 6 week trip to Tassie without sighting a Platypus, visited the Tasmanian Arboretum and sighted Platypus many times.  more »
  • Lovely place with some interesting history in it. Loads of beautiful trees and little side walks everywhere. The lady in the cafe was very sweet and helpful also note they only take cash here. We had ...  more »
  • Although it was quite warm, I enjoyed the Tasmanian Arboretum. They had different regions to visit, like the Tasmanian Alpines or the Tasmanian wet forests... There was a Platypus observatory. Instead...  more »

  • My husband and I are returning from a month of travel in Tasmania. We were fortunate that another visitor mentioned the Tasmanian Arboretum as it was not listed in any of the travel guides I read. It is a lovely tree filled arboretum with a centrally located pond which is inhabited with platypus. A blind on the bank allows one to observe these very unusual creatures which we were able to do. Plus there is a small cafe on site where tea and scones can be enjoyed on a rainy day if desired. We were well tended to by the caretaker who also staffs the cafe. This is an undiscovered gem and well worth a visit.
  • Beautiful peaceful walking tracks with an abundance of flora and fauna. Many photo opportunities and the bonus of a platypus and bird hide on Founders Lake. We snapped a number of birds and a platypus. After enjoying the sun we retreated to the shade of The Tree Park Kiosk and enjoyed the best homemade ice cream I have had in a very long time. Scones, sandwiches, tea and coffee also on offer at reasonable rates. If self sufficient a number of picnic tables and grassed areas to enjoy a picnic lunch. Entry fee only $5/adult and well worth it.
  • Loved the place, arrived late so didnt have enough time to get to each of the tracks to discover these large planted areas...advising to spend few hours there!
  • A gem. For anyone not to be enchanted or appreciative of this treasure made up of many hours of hard work, its surviving longevity, excellent volunteers and wonderful bonus days such as bird tours etc, they would need to be asleep. Thank you for your contribution to trees, earth, wildlife and nature Tassie Arboretum! I will visit often. (Swans, platypus, ducks and little red-bottomed birds, not to mention the Don River. What's not to like.)
  • Great place to see 👌🏽
