Welcome to the Tasmanian Arboretum
In a beautiful and peaceful landscape sits a garden of trees of the temperate world. From flowers in spring through the shade of summer to autumn colours and the patterns of winter, enjoy a visit to our collections of cool climate woody plants.
Here is the world's largest collection of Tasmanian living woody plants; Southern Hemisphere Conifers and plants from northern hemisphere forests, in an extensive park.
Within the park sits the natural heritage of the Eugenana limestone beds and the marks of colonial and early Federation industrial endeavour.
Many local bird species are present and platypus may be seen on many days.
The Tasmanian Arboretum has been developed by the local community with extensive volunteer input showing what a can be achieved from a dream.
We hope your exploration of this website will inspire you to enjoy a visit to our botanical tree park.
We warmly congratulate Dick Burns on his being awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia on 26 January 2013. Dick is curator of the Tasmanian section and author, most recently, of Pathfinders in Tasmanian Botany.
