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.

Felt very at peace walking around the grounds and discovering all sorts of new and weird plants/trees. I took a book and went around to the various gardens. Very lovely.

Spent a lovely couple of hours walking around the gardens and could have spent the day there! Excellent place to bring a picnic. There is also a café there but we did not have time to try it out.

A volunteer took us around in a buggy and explained lots about the garden to us that we would not have known if we didn't take the ride. $5 well spent.

Coming from dry QLD my boyfriend and I thought these gardens were just so beautiful. There were so many pretty flowers & places to just lay and relax under a tree. If you have a bit of spare time while you're in Hobart you should defiantly put this on one of your places to visit
