Prospect Villa and Garden is at Hamilton along the Rivers Run touring route, about 60 minutes north of Hobart.
You can walk in the romantic colour-blended gardens, abundantly planted in classic designs and admire the elegant early-colonial architecture of the villa with its mellow stone walls. Prospect Villa gardens demonstrate what can be created in a garden in a dry part of Australia.
There are panoramic views of the surrounding valleys, rolling hills and sometimes snow-capped mountains.
The live-in owners provide guided tours of the heritage-listed villa and gardens.
Open daily 1000 to 1600 September to April (other times by arrangement).
Admission: AUD5 per person.
