Hampshire: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Guide Falls Farm


Welcome to Guide Falls Farm. Nestled just above the infamous 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! Take Ally the alpaca for a walk around the gardens. Feed Edward the emu and the goats, rabbits, sheep, peacocks, deer and llama (just to name a few). We have many beautiful and rare birds.
Bring along some bread and feed the eager chickens and ducks. Or bring a picnic and enjoy an afternoon in the sun watching the cows graze and the lambs chase each other through the paddocks.
The farm is under new management and we will be adding more new and exciting attractions all the time.
The animal park is open 1000 to 1600 Wednesday to Sunday and is available for school and group bookings on Monday and Tuesdays. We will extend opening hours as the weather gets warmer.
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 Cave


Mr Bill Woodhouse of Gunns Plains discovered Gunns Plains Cave in 1906 during 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 steep flight of 54 concrete steps are descended and from this point the pathway is fairly level apart from a short ladder to be climbed down. The tour route through the cave is some 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.
The cave was formed by an underground river 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 its magnificent shawl and flowstone formations and the recent improvements will assist visitors to enjoy the cave experience."
Gunns Plain Cave is open daily (closed Christmas Day) from 1000 to 1630. For further information on tour times, please phone (03) 6429 1388.

Emu Valley Rhododendron Gardens


The Emu Valley Rhododendron Garden is a stunning garden near Burnie, north-west Tasmania.
The Gardens are a ten-minute drive south of Burnie. The 11-hectare/28-acre garden features over 22,000 select rhododendrons and companion plants, creating a spectacular display between August and January each year. Colourful autumn foliage makes April a good time to visit, too. In addition to the hybrid rhododendrons familiar to gardeners, you can see many wild species of rhododendrons planted to reflect their geographical origins - from Asia Minor, across the Himalayas to China, Japan and to North America.
You can take a number of walks through the Gardens 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.
Our tea room is open Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays during August and September, and December through April. Open every day during peak flowering months of October and November. Tearoom is closed from May to end of July. EFTPOS not available.
