We had a plan to visit two gardens in one day: Allendale Gardens near Smithton and Emu Valley Rhododendron Garden near Burnie. We thought that we would spent an hour in Allendale Gardens and then go to Burnie. In fact we spent more than 3 hours wandering through the Allendale Gardens with no chance to see Emu Valley Rhododendron Garden. And you know what? I think that was a great idea to stay here longer than expected, as Burnie is located not far away from Devonport and we will visit Emu Valley one day in a daytrip from Launceston / Devonport in our next visit to Tassie.
