Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Tasmania / Greater Hobart / Hobart / Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens
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.

Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens reviews
Great place to unwind from the city life. Loved the edible garden, tried a fejoa and got to know what we can plant in Tassie's climate.

Definitely worth a visit, take a picnic or eat at the cafe. Lots of open garden space with sections themed by genre or country. We enjoyed an afternoon wandering through the garden.

Wow, the second oldest gardens in Australia doesn't disappoint! Particular highlights for us were the food garden and the Japanese garden, but we easily spent half a day here. I would highly recommend bringing a picnic and enjoying lunch here. Or if you can't be prepared there is a restaurant and kiosk. The gift shop is also excellent with high quality products suitable for gardeners. We visited heading into Autumn and were just starting to see the colours change on the males, simply stunning. I'd love to visit in spring and see everything in full bloom.
One of best Botanical Garden in Australia. People in Tasmania should be proud of keeping this beautiful, well maintained, and popular for not only locals but also visitors. It takes in about 2hrs to make a quick route with some snap photos taken, but it is recommended to plan in about 2-3hrs if time is allowed. The cafe in the middle of Garden offers pretty good and fresh food, also refreshment - Ice Cream. Definitely recommended!
