Kimberley: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Villarett Gardens


Experience Villarett Gardens at Moltema, near Elizabeth Town in Tasmania's north. It is the result of the overwhelming passion of two dedicated gardeners. Over the last 31 years Graeme and Linda Chugg have created this sophisticated, stylish contemporary garden.
Beginning a garden on the side of a hill with just a few mature holly, beech and oak trees, they have, with skill, hard work and devotion developed a garden of rare beauty. The magnificent use of hedges and innovative planting combined with modern sculpture has created something rarely seen in Tasmania, a garden where architectural space is used to striking effect.
Despite the physical and mental demands of running a highly successful restaurant, they keep the garden to a degree of manicured perfection that is truly amazing. Being a skilled hedge trimmer, Linda is one of a rare breed of women, trimming the hedges is her way of relaxing after a hectic days work. Graeme has created all the metal sculptures himself over the last ten years, which add a new dimension to an already inspired setting.
Villaret Gardens well deserves its reputation as one of Tasmania's iconic gardens.
Ideal to visit for a delicious meal, function, wedding or stay.

As a green fee guest, you can join members in the regular competitions and relax in the fully-licensed clubhouse after your round.
This area is dominated by the craggy peak of Mount Roland (1,234 metres) and the course has outstanding views of the mountain and across the Kentish Plains. There are a number of well-marked bushwalks here, and walking tracks to the summit reward you with stunning views.

Henry Somerset Orchid Reserve


Australia's only orchid reserve, this site is renowned for the diversity of native terrestrial orchids. Some of the orchids are listed as rare and endangered species. Some are not only endemic to the state of Tasmania, but to the local area.
Take Railton Rd (B13) about 5 minutes' drive south from Latrobe.
The walk takes approximately 45 minutes. The reserve does not have any public facilities and there are no entry fees to pay.
Some 43 species have been recorded within the reserve, varying from the tall 60cm tall Hyacinth orchid Dipodium roseum, a leafless saprophyte that appears annually in early summer, to the tiny 2cm Winter Helmet orchids Corybas species.
Recent taxonomic review into the Genus Caladenia by the Centre for Plant Biodiversity, Australian National Botanical Gardens in Canberra, has resulted in the discovery of a new species, Robust Finger orchid, Petalochilus tonellii, named after the reserve founder and Hon. Warden Peter Tonelli.
