Beatrix Potter with Spot the dog
Tasmania’s Riversdale Estate is a small family company, owned and operated by husband and wife team, Ian and Wendy Roberts. Home base for the company – and its adjunct vineyard and wine tourism businesses – is a picturesque farming property, overlooking Pitt Water, at Cambridge, in the island State’s renowned Coal River Valley wine region, just outside Hobart.
Riversdale Estate’s wine tourism businesses comprise seven attractive, self-contained French Provincial cottages; a warm and welcoming vineyard cellar door operation; a French Bistro, offering lunches and catered function services seven days a week; a French Orangery serving delicious, silver service High Teas; and – from early 2016 – a Peter Rabbit-themed children’s garden and birthday centre. The garden will be the only one of its type in the Southern Hemisphere.
The Peter Rabbit™ Garden has been created from the inspiration of the many Beatrix Potter illustrations from the original Peter Rabbit books, sketches, letters and journals.
Visitors to Riversdale Estate will be able to take an enchanting stroll through Peter Rabbit’s Garden and see Mr. McGregor and the story of Peter Rabbit unfold, along with many other children's favourites from the imaginery world of Beatrix Potter's book characters.
