The Gardens is an ideal spot to get away from it all and offers some of the best vistas of the Bay of Fires. This scenic part of the East Coast was named by Lady Jane Franklin, wife of the governor of Tasmania in the early 1800’s, due to the abundance of wild flowers in the area. Perched over looking the coast, exclusive holidays homes at the Gardens have access to one of the best beaches in Tasmania.
The Gardens is 13km north of Binalong. It is around 15 minutes drive from Binalong Bay or 25 minutes from St Helens.
Things to see and do
There are many secluded beaches and rocky inlets to explore between the Gardens and Binalong Bay. Taylors Beach is an expanse stretch of white sand beach – perfect for a long beach walk or to take a fishing rod to while the day away. Swimcart beach is one of the best surf fishing beaches in the area and hosts an annual fishing competition around April. Over this weekend, the normally quiet beach comes alive with keen anglers looking to reel in a prizewinning fish.
An abundance of wildlife can been seen from the Gardens. You maybe lucky enough to spot a pod of dolphins or migrating Southern right or Humpback whales from the comfort of your deck.
Local Tip – Take a picnic to Honeymoon Point. Only a couple minutes drive from the gardens with it’s own private beach and pristine turquoise waters, this secluded spot is one of the romantic nooks at the Bay of Fires.
