Hawley's Garden has gained international recognition as a triumph over virtually impossible conditions.
Set on a peninsula into the Southern Oceans, and buffeted by the salt-laden Roaring Forties, the tranquil oasis of a chain of small lakes down to a sandy beach and overlooking the pristine ranges of the Narawntapu National Park.
These gardens, which have been literally scraped from the bedrock, now encompass an extensive range of exotic plants from cool temperate through to sub-tropical plants. The gardens is divided into distinctive plant associations and spans some 20 acres, grading into National Heritage wetlands, 20 acres of intensive vineyards and a 350 acre wildlife reserve.
Hawley regularly hosts premier garden and wildlife tours around Tasmania.
