Hampshire: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Guide Falls Farm


Welcome to Guide Falls Farm. Nestled just above the gorgeous Guide Falls on the North West Coast of Tasmania is Guide Falls Farm. Set on a large acreage, come along and wander through the native gardens and feed the growing family of animals.
Bring the family and your friends and come for a tour of the animal park. Buy a bucket of feed and handfeed Edward the emu, Andy the horse, as well as goats, rabbits, pigs, sheep, peacocks, deer, chickens and alpaca (just to name a few). We have giant rainbow trout in our trout ponds which feed like piranha! The kids will love our baby animal nursery.
You can also bring a picnic and enjoy an afternoon in the sun. We host regular food and music events and sell farm fresh produce direct from our farm shop.
The animal park is open 10am - 4pm seven days a week and is closed for June and July and only open weekends in May.
We look forward to welcoming you onto the farm soon.

Hellyer Gorge


Make your way via Hellyer Gorge for a spectacular scenic route to the West Coast or Cradle Mountain. The windy route and steep cliffs make for a jaw-dropping wilderness drive, and is a favourite route for bike riders and touring cars. The welcoming canopy of rainforest provides a spectacular picnic spot along the banks of the Hellyer River. There are toilet and barbecue facilities, and the picnic area is the starting point for two short walks: the River Walk and the Old Myrtle Forest Walk. From Wynyard, take a 30-minute drive via Mount Hicks Road to Yolla where the road joins the Murchison Highway. Follow this through Hellyer Gorge and on to the historic town of Waratah, the iconic Cradle Mountain or the wild West Coast.

Gunns Plains Caves


Mr Bill Woodhouse entered Gunns Plains Cave in 1906 after a hunting trip. The cave consists of a series of caverns and short passages through which visitors are escorted along well lit concrete pathways.
The cave entrance is situated 30 metres from the car park. Upon entry a flight of 54 concrete steps are descended. From this point the pathway is fairly level apart from a short ladder to be climbed down. The tour route into the cave is 275 metres long. Occasional dampness underfoot is not troublesome provided visitors wear low-heeled walking shoes. It is not recommended for those with health or mobility concerns. Please check first.
The cave was formed by an underground stream that still flows and contains Giant Freshwater Lobster, fish and eel. Platypus sleep and nest in the sandy banks along the river. Lofty chambers contain many varied formations including magnificent calcite shawls.
"The cave is renowned for magnificent shawl and flowstone formations. Improvements including LED lighting will assist visitors to enjoy the cave experience."
Gunns Plain Cave is open daily (closed Christmas Day) with tours from 1000 1100 1200 1330 1430 and 1530.

The Emu Valley Rhododendron Garden is a stunning garden near Burnie, north-west Tasmania.
The Garden is located 8km south of Burnie, off the Ridgley Highway. The 11-hectare/25-acre garden features over 23,000 select rhododendrons and companion plants, creating a spectacular display between late August and January each year.

You can take a number of walks through the Garden to enjoy the plants and tranquillity of this lush environment. Platypus, echidna, and diverse bird life are routinely sighted, and plantings are enhanced by a number of landscape features include gazebos, bridges, waterways, and a fountain.
The Emu Valley Rhododendron Garden is a partner garden of the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.
