Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, Hobart

(1,700+ reviews on the web)
Garden
Established almost two centuries ago, Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens overlooks the Derwent River and the Tasman Bridge. These gardens hold historic plant collections and a large number of significant native and exotic trees and flowers, many dating back to the 19th century. At this location, you can visit the world's only Sub Antarctic Plant House, where plants from the islands located in high southern latitudes are displayed in climatically-controlled habitats mirroring the natural conditions of their native environments. Take a short walk from the city center to see the site's historic convict-built walls, or picnic on the grass. Make sure to stop by the visitor center, which houses a small restaurant, souvenir shop, and a gallery with regularly changing displays. Put Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Hobart trip itinerary planner.

  • I visited the Botanical Garden in a spectacularly sunny day. The colors of the flowers and trees were amplified in their splendor. Rich in species, well organized is a great place to spend time with children

  • Well maintained Gardens and significant variety. Check out the Macquarie Island garden which is specially refrigerated to the island mean temperture. The Tasmanian Orchid Society presents some wonderful plants at the peak of perfection - donates a few dollars when you visit the classic sandstone hot house.
  • Nice spot to go check out on a nice day. A lot more to see & do than I expected. Some interesting spots like the artic house & the Japanese garden. Too bad that the road way goes along the majority of it. You can hear the traffic pretty bad
  • Beautiful gardens, lots to explore for kids & adults alike. Couldn't see everything in one visit, so will be sure to go again... and again. Visit in Spring to enjoy all the adorable little ducklings on the pond.
  • Compact yet has an extensive collection for its size. Peacefull gardens to take a break and close to city centre.
  • Was really not expecting as much as was delivered, was completely overwhelmed by this place. Could have walked around all day. The fauna was cheeky, the flora was a delight. Great place to spend a lazy afternoon.
