The garden is a hidden gem. It covers nearly an acre and is situated less than 3 km from central Hobart. Until 20 years ago much of this was undeveloped, and now boasts an amazing array of Spring flowering trees and shrubs including rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias to name a few, as well as a range of rare and unusual plants. The garden will be open for one day only to help raise funds for the Claremont Golf Club. This is the first time this garden has been open to the public.
