Visit New Nor­folk’s Valleyfield Gar­den, open to­mor­row and next Sun­day from 10am-4.30pm. This pri­vate Na­tional Trust-listed prop­erty goes back to 1813 when the land was granted to exNor­folk Is­land con­victs Wil­liam and Mary Abel. On the River Der­went, the house was built and li­censed as the Kings Head Inn in 1822. Hugh Ash­ton Warner bought it in 1919 and his de­scen­dants have lived there since. It was once home to Tas­ma­nian Gover­nor Kate Warner and hus­band Dick. It is now owned by one of their daugh­ters and her fam­ily. Its lawns, ma­jes­tic trees and boun­ti­ful flower and vegie gar­dens will be open to the pub­lic. En­try (cash only) is $10 adults, $5 chil­dren, $25 per fam­ily and in­cludes tea and cof­fee. Light re­fresh­ments from Sil­ver Bean Events food van. 120 Hamil­ton Rd, New Nor­folk. face­book.com/Valleyfield.New.Nor­folk
