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.
