Kindred: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Tasmanian Arboretum Inc. - The


The Arboretum is a 66 hectare botanical tree park and nature reserve in Tasmania's North West.
Only a few kilometres from Devonport but a million miles from care, the 66 hectares of landscaped Arboretum and natural bushland was founded in 1984. It offers the opportunity to walk among collections of woody plants from around the temperate world, including many of Tasmania's woody plants.
Set in a peaceful and beautiful valley, you may see some of Tasmania's wildlife, such as swift parrots and platypus.
Cultural and natural heritage combine in the Limestone Heritage Walk, a self-guided walk linking the geology with a century of human activity contributing to colonial and national development. Two hour guided walks are available for a reasonable cost, and can be booked online. Bookings are essential.
The Arboretum offers three picnic shelters, two with coin operated electric barbecues. There are also two general shelters and a platypus observatory and bird hide on the shore of Founders' Lake.
The Tree Park Kiosk offers light refreshments and audio tours. It is operated by volunteers and opens between October and May from 1100 to 1600.
Eugenana is a 15-minute drive (11 km) south of Devonport.

Don River Railway


Passenger trains disappeared from Tasmania some time ago, except this one, a full size loco service from the Don Village Station to Coles Beach every day.
After leaving Don Village, the route of the Don River Railway winds its way along the Eastern banks of the picturesque Don River, passing Restoration Siding where old vehicles are awaiting their turn for restoration at the hands of the craftsmen. During the thirty minute return journey you will pass through a nature reserve and you will also see many places of historical interest.
A steam locomotive pulls the train on Sundays and public holidays and all January (other than high fire danger days). For the remainder of the year weekday trains are run with a vintage rail car. The collection of steam and diesel locomotives and rolling stock is open for inspection at the Don Village Station, where there is also a souvenir and model shop.

Home Hill


Now owned and operated by the National Trust, Home Hill was the family home of Tasmania's only Prime Minister, Joseph Lyons, his wife Dame Enid Lyons - the first woman elected to Australia's federal parliament - and their 12 children.
Built for the family in 1916, it became their haven from public life and remains largely as it was when Dame Enid last lived there in 1981.
Dame Enid's style is evident throughout the house, with an amazing array of wallpapers from the 1940s to the 1970s beneath classic pressed tin ceilings; and in the garden through the rock walls and paths, the pond and the garden rooms.
Every part of Home Hill houses a rich collection of the political and personal mementos of two people who dedicated their lives to public service and their family, providing an unexpected insight into Australian political life and international relations during the momentous events of the mid-twentieth century.
Situated only a five-minute drive from either the centre of Devonport or the Spirit of Tasmania dock, Home Hill is accessible by guided tour only.
Bookings recommended. Age 6 and under free. Child price is for age 7 to 16.

Quiet Cone Latrobe - The


The Quiet Cone, located in Latrobe on Tasmania's beautiful northwest coast offers an incredible experience. Shape, sound and scent and a combination of ancient knowledge in a modern setting create a new level of serenity and quietness.
Your unique experience begins when you enter a giant cone shaped structure designed to offer comfort, resonance and atmosphere. You make yourself at home on the comfortable mattresses and cushions, looking up into the seeming endless cone, while the aroma of sandalwood infuses the air, instilling a sense of well-being and relaxation.
Quietly you hear the resonating tones of symphonic gongs, being softly struck within the dome that encases you. Added to this we have the beautiful tones of Tibetan Singing Bowls and the wonderful sounds of Corinthian Chimes. The sound and vibration together with the sandalwood scent and placid atmosphere of the cone make you feel relaxed and serene.
Even if you have never meditated before, you cannot help but enter a supremely restful yet energising meditative state.
This is an experience you will be keen to repeat and share with others.
A gift shop, gardens, a 'Walk of Contemplation' and other healing therapies on site.
