Emu Valley Rhododendron Garden

Parks and Gardens

The Emu Valley Rhododendron Garden is a stunning garden near Burnie, north-west Tasmania.
The Garden is located 8km south of Burnie, off the Ridgley Highway. The 11-hectare/25-acre garden features over 23,000 select rhododendrons and companion plants, creating a spectacular display between late 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 Garden 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 December through April. Open every day during peak flowering months of September, October and November. Tearoom is closed from May to end of July. EFTPOS now available.
