The place is filled with birds and visited regularly by native animals. On a noticeboard at the entrance is an amazing close up photo of a masked owl that had landed on the ground after being harassed by crows. Another photo shows a pademelon stretching up to drink from one of the decorative water fountains.
The entrance to Inverawe Native Gardens is located at the rear of the Margate Train, only 20 minutes drive from Hobart. If you are a serious gardening buff, you could take a tour hosted by one of the owners. We politely declined and took a self-guided walk instead, using the helpful map provided.
