  • Why go to the arboretum when on holiday? It was exactly that question that come to my mind when I headed over there. But on my visit this little treasure sure grew on me! Also, make sure to try the scones at the kiosk! After some days trying spotting Platypus in the wild we finally decided to try the arboretum. Due to floods in the Mole Creek area none of the other Platypus Hotspots were reachable so we decided tot try this spot we heard about called the Tasmanian Arboretum. We found ourselves visiting the Arboretum on a lovely day, sunny and slightly windy. Immediately we headed for the bird and platypus hideout, a nice shelter with a great overview over the lake. After 15 minutes we saw what we came for, a platypus! Then we took time to visit the rest of the arboretum and fell in love with it! It is so wonderful! Head out for the Limestone lookout right behind the bird hideout. It is a great place to get close with some birds and wallabies. Take the walks through the different continents, they're beautiful. Also make sure to try the scones at the kiosk, they are delicious!
  • Growing niceley. Good spring wildflower display
  • A really cool place to get away from things and just enjoy creation. Good well defined paths, and lots of seating. Well worth a look
  • We visited here hoping to see a platypus and were not rewarded. It is a peaceful spot but having just come from cradle mountain nothing special
  • It's beautiful, though there is not much shadow on the paths, wear a hat on warm days!
