The Gardens

Covering close to an acre, Corinda boasts one of the finest private gardens in the whole of Tasmania. Laid out in a series of “rooms”, or compartments, defined by yew and box hedges with antique urns, delightful topiary figures of native animals and tiers of espalier limes, it is richly planted to provide colour and botanical interest throughout the year.

A magnificent Magnolia tree, more than 100 years old, is floodlit at night and visible for miles around.

The garden won a major National Trust Award in 1995.

Since these are private gardens it’s not possible to just turn up. But, if you would like to visit the gardens, you have three options:

  • Book a room or cottage with us via the Enquire button below
  • Book a group tour of eight people or more. We usually conduct tours Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday after 11am, but other days are available on request.
  • Book breakfast with us between 8 and 10am and you can explore the gardens afterwards. Our amazing a la carte breakfasts cost $36pp – bookings are essential.
