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.

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.
