Tewkesbury: 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.

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.

TSO Ode to Nellie Melba, Burnie


Before there was The Voice, there was "The Voice", as Dame Nellie Melba was known to describe herself. Famous from St Petersburg to San Francisco, the Melbourne-born soprano was idolised in the theatre and mobbed on the street. A celebrity who enjoyed all the trappings of superstardom _ seven kings and queens attended one of her gala performances; a dessert was created in her honour - Nellie Melba basked in the spotlight at Covent Garden, the Paris Opera, La Scala and Hobart City Hall, Launceston's Albert Hall and Zeehans Gaiety Theatre.
Stunning Australian soprano Lorina Gore performs Nellie Melba's signature arias, including "Caro nome" from Rigoletto, the "Jewel Song" from Faust, the "Waltz Song" from Romeo et Juliette, and lots more. The diva on the hundred dollar note comes to life in this sumptuous tribute concert. Nellie Melba captured the hearts of the nation. Lorina Gore as Nellie Melba will capture yours too.
