You must visit the RTBG! While showcasing their native flora you'll also find a variety of other interesting things like the Antarctic cold house that houses an unusual collection of cold adapted plants. The gardens are nicely kept, clean and have lots to see, and you will find lots of shade under the tall pine and giant sequoia trees.

I visited Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens are recommendation of my friend. I could tell that I was impressed from the first step I arrived in the Gardens. It was the most beautiful garden I have ever visited since I came to Australia (I have been to some botanical gardens while I'm in Australia). Each corner has their own theme and... More

We stopped at the gardens while on the red bus and the gardens are just beautiful with the old homes on the grounds.

The botanic garden was full of spring blossoms during our visit. It was peaceful and relaxing to walk through the gardens. Views of Hobart were mostly blocked by trees and shrubs even at the hill top lookout.

The flowers are very nice, the trees majestic, and the visitor's center attractive. It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon, watching people, viewing the new goslings, and reading about the Pergola, the Wall, vanishing / nearly extinct plants and life as a gardener. This is a little patch of tranquility near the city. Only bummer is hearing the... More

I went to a wedding in the Conservatory in the Botanical gardens in Hobart. It was a lovely day and the plants in and around the garden were at their best. The views from the gardens out to the Derwent River were unbelievable. If nothing else the setting and views are worth a visit.

These gardens are quite beautiful. Not too formal and with many places to sit, relax and take in the view of the Derwent. Tulips were in full bloom when we visited. They were breathtakingly beautiful. Cafe was lovely too. Specially love the large number of European deciduous tress.
