Welcome to the Tasmanian Arboretum

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.

Platypus can be reliably seen most days in Founder's Lake and around 80 local bird species are present.

The Tasmanian Arboretum has been developed by the local community with extensive volunteer input showing what can be achieved from a dream.

A garden of trees of the temperate world in a beautiful and peaceful landscape. From flowers in spring through the shade of summer to autumn colours and the patterns of winter, we invite you to enjoy a visit to our collections of cool climate woody plants.
