Tumut Valley Violets is situated in the grounds of an old schoolhouse just a short distance from the town centre of Tumut. The lovely owners are obsessed with violets and have over 700 varieties on display. There are also propagating kits available so you can grow your own violet garden at home as well as a variety of tree ferns and other outdoor plants. After you finish browsing the cottage gardens you can sample the delights of the garden cafe. They serve the best Devonshire teas and coffees and there are soft drinks and juice for the kids. The gardens here are set on 2 glorious acres and you should certainly come and see them on your next trip to the southern highlands !
