An excellent example of how large gardens should be. Take time spend the day and also restaurant is open and food and service ok. Well worth seeing while in Hobart.

Had a great time in the beautiful gardens - even it was raining but so much fun. Heaps of parking and so much to see plus all free except a donation! Historical little tips too around the place. Also ate a lot of the little veggies in the garden. Glorious little places like the fern garden and so on.

Today we were refused entry to half the gardens because of some outrageous small egg hunt!! Not happy!! Came to experience the whole gardens and got barely anything to see!!!

The gardens are lovely, although close to a freeway and no view of the Governor's mansion which seemed quite a shame. The only view of the Governor's mansion is from the highway...really??? We had tea & scones at the cafe on the property.

Brilliant day in glorious sunshine. A long but rewarding hike from town. History and harmony with every outlook a pleasure. Birds, flowers, bees. Education and Entertainment, food gardens and wide lawns and a huge sequoia. The fuschia house is a sweet delight. Loved every moment.

Heaps of things for kids to do inside and out- feed the ducks, run around and enjoy the beautiful autumn leaves an open spaces (perfect for rolling down).Visitor centre kid friendly, and the gardens and views inspiring. Lots of places to sit and share a picnis- some tables, a lovely pergola, or plenty of grass for a blanket.

The view from the Botanical Gardens is extraordinary, but the whole place is so relaxing, and has many different areas within its bounds. I love the herb garden and the vegetable gardens, but also the different birds that are attracted to the vegetation. Every area has its delights! It is a great place for a picnic, or eat at the...

If like me you buy the local paper and visit Botanical Gardens everywhere you go this one will not disappoint! Waterside and near the aquatic centres it's a very pleasant place to walk, absorb the local flora and take photographs.

Botanical Gardens around the world are fairly similar and you either love them or hate them. Hobart gardens have plenty of plants to see and to learn about and there is a lovely herb garden that can inspire some creative cooking :-) Enjoy a lazy stroll through the gardens.
