Allendale Gardens are the love and work of Loraine and Max Cross. Located 12 km south of Smithton in the North West, the 2.75 hectares (6 acres) of gardens neighbour 65 acres of temperate rainforest with its associated walks.
The garden 'rooms' are designed to provide a spectacle of colour throughout the opening months.
Not only are flowers and their wonderful array of colours featured here, but trees and conifers from around the world are found throughout to add interest. Birds enjoy it here too with over 80 species recorded as being seen here. It is a popular location for weddings.
Devonshire teas are also available to enjoy and in the Garden Gallery you will find postcards, books, posters as well as a DVD of the gardens.
The gardens are planted along the banks of Allen Creek and open each year on the first Tuesday in October and close the last Saturday in April.

We will be closed from 15th to 31st December 2013, reopening 1st January 2014. Groups can be arranged on these days by appointment.
