Loved visiting Tino's Patch, the Japanese Garden, herb gardens, the worlds only recreation of subAntarctic garden (awesome!!!), the beautiful orchard house, the stunning spring tulips. A really lovely way to spend a couple of hours on a sunny Saturday afternoon & bonus!!! You could park right outside the gate!!!

One of the few botanical gardens I've visited that could be said to have character, especially with remnants of the original gardens scattered about. Offers good views over the Derwent and teasing glimpses of Government House. The conservatory is amazing; the building itself is fascinating and the flowers are stunning. The Antarctic house is unique in the world. It's small... More

Very special place, rhododendrons in flower, beautiful lawns and great open space. Lovely gift shop and food in restaurant was very good. Service was a bit ordinary but otherwise great experience

We toured around the gardens today with our 5 year old and 18 month old children and we all found it stunning!!! Great for the kids to be able to run around in fresh air and STUNNING surrounds! So clean, tidy and beautiful! Highly recommend!

Hard to enjoy the gardens as it was raining and cold and not a lot of places to escape the rain while walking to the gardens. Quite a nice place but nothing spectacular. Definitely not to visit on a rainy day.

Spent time here just chilling out after walking around Battery Point. Nice trees and gardens worth a visit when your down in Tasmania.

We walked around the center of Hobard but didn't find it too impressive. As there was some time left before our flight back to Melbourne, we decided to visit the Botanical Gardens. The first positive thing: free parking close to the gate. It was early afternoon with a bit of rain and there were few other visitors. The native plants... More

We visited the gardens fairly late in the afternoon. Beautiful water views. Buses do not serve the garden well. Best to take a taxi.

A must if in Tasmania on a spring day all the flowers would be out and have a picnic in the gardens or have lunch in the coffee shop.
