Kay and Robert Crowden built Kaydale Lodge on a rural property of 70 hectares at Nietta in 1979 and today with their two daughters Amarlie and Lesley they have worked to surround the Lodge with an amazing cool climate garden that has a diverse range of plants and truly showcases all the four seasons.

The creativity of the hard landscaping and attention to detail has ensured Kaydale’s popularity and reputation as one of
Tasmania’s premiere garden attractions.
