Guide Falls Farm


Welcome to Guide Falls Farm. Nestled just above the gorgeous 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. Buy a bucket of feed and handfeed Edward the emu, Andy the horse, as well as goats, rabbits, pigs, sheep, peacocks, deer, chickens and alpaca (just to name a few). We have giant rainbow trout in our trout ponds which feed like piranha! The kids will love our baby animal nursery.
You can also bring a picnic and enjoy an afternoon in the sun. We host regular food and music events and sell farm fresh produce direct from our farm shop.
The animal park is open 10am - 4pm seven days a week and is closed for June and July and only open weekends in May.
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.
