Garden Lovers Trail
TO VISIT IN NORTH-EAST TASMANIA
The North East Garden
Lovers Trail is a group of private gardens situated in the scenic
Dorset muncipality of Tasmania. The trail does not have grand
and professionally designed creations but, instead a selection
of gardens created from the heart by the owners. Each garden is
distinctly different and offers the viewer something unique in
style, atmosphere and the type of plants grown and as well the
chance to enter into the world of the gardener and maybe a glimpse
into the soul of the garden.
A feature of the trail
is the setting of each garden in the magnificent rural scenery
of the area.
