We entered for a gold coin donation and had a wonderful hours walk around the winter gardens. It was beautiful and well maintained, I can imagine it is even more glorious in the spring and summer.

Lovely place to wander around at ll times of the year. Very popular with locals and visitors alike, because it is within easy walking distance of the city. You don't have to be botanical to appreciate this lovely spot

The Tasmanian Botanical Gardens are quite unique and are even better and more colourful in spring time, which in Tasmania is usually quite late. Very interesting is the Arctic enclosure. Where most the wildlife is depicted - not for real mind you. For the botanical enthusiast, there are a lot of plants and bushes to admire which are scattered all... More

We walked from Elizabeth Street Pier via the soldiers memorial walk .. it took us about an hour to get to the gardens and they are well worth a look ... will hopefully be back in spring and autumn to see them again.

A great place to have a walk and a picnic with the kids. The whole place is beautiful, but the conservatory, the Japanese garden and the duckpond are all winners with the kids, who love water features.

Took the red bus tour to the Botanical Gardens. Sure worth while. Commentary of historical interest was great. The Gardens are in a spectacular spot and beautifully arranged. Always love the ABC Gardening Show vegetable plot - amazing what grows in a cold climate.

Beautiful gardens. A monet style pond setting creates a fantastic environment. Bring a picnic and blanket. Explore some great areas of the gardens. A hot house of plants. Undulating walks and simply fantastic colors everywhere. You'll love it
