The Margaret Mitchell Garden is a quite new native plant garden located in Richmond Tasmania. The planting highlights Coal Valley Plants and Tasmanian plants generally, and provides a peaceful place to sit and contemplate the natural world. A great place for children to wander and play too. We even have a giant chess set and a Boules pad. We hope to continue to care for and develop the garden as an educational and relaxing place for tourists and locals.

Where we work

The Margaret Mitchell Garden is a quite new native plant garden located in Richmond Tasmania. The planting highlights Coal Valley Plants and Tasmanian plants generally, and provides a peaceful place to sit and contemplate the natural world. A great place for children to wander and play too. We even have a giant chess set and a Boules pad. We have a small information building on-site which has wildlife information about the nearby Pittwater Reserve, an important RAMSAR listed reserve.

The garden is named in honor of Dr Margaret Mitchell, who was a general practitioner in Richmond and the first female councillor elected in the area

What we do

We hope to continue to care for and develop the garden as an educational and relaxing place for tourists and locals.

The Friends of the Margaret Mitchell Garden meet on site on the first Sunday of each month at 10 o’clock for an hour, for a quick weed or tidy up. Please feel very welcome to come along and join us. Our first garden time will be the 6th of November.
