Get away from the CBD in the CBD

A great place to cycle through and enjoy the walls as well. Right in the centre of the CBD. Very peaceful

I love our Botanical Gardens. They are popular for visitors and locals alike. Botanically they are well regarded. It is easy to wander the pathways to appreciate all it has to offer. It is also the site of much of the filming for Gardening Australia. Views across to the Eastern Shore.

This is a lovely restaurant which is now very up-market serving modern and beautifully presented meals and afternoon teas. There is a balcony for warmer days with a lovely view of the gardens and river and the inside restaurant is light and sunny. Just note: I found the meals to be on the smaller side which is good for my... More

We walked to the gardens from the city via the Queens Domain, which took about 30 mins. Once at the gardens, they were well laid out and varied with different sections and weaving pathways, providing nice photo opportunities and peaceful surrounds. The Conservatory with its orchids and Antarctic House with cold climate plants was interesting to visit, as well as... More

What an amazing place the Hobart Botanical Gardens is, with so much to see, wander around, or just sit under a tree reading a book. There is also a great restaurant or, for the day travellers, a cafe just nearby, together with a lovely gift shop with quite a diverse range of items, some made locally. Everything is wheelchair friendly... More

A lovely place to walk around on a sunny winters day. Even though plants in hibernation there was enough to enjoy with the French Fountain, the lake and the vegetable garden

A lovely garden for an afternoon wander. The Japanese garden is gorgeous. Beautiful views can be had across the water, an added bonus.

As far as botanical Gardens go this place is absolutely stunning. Lovely place to eat too with a beautiful view of the gardens and friendly staff. Again a great day out that doesn't cost the earth. I hate spending hefty entrance fees for attractions that only disappoint. You can have a lovely day out here for next to nothing. Why... More

As a keen photographer, the Botanical gardens are a gem. Around every corner there is something that catches the eye to photograph, be it the Japanese gardens or the Little Bridge over the Lily Pond. The manured lawns and weed free flower beds are a credit to all involved. When I was last there the Autumn colours of the trees... More

Loved the gardens- so peaceful and beautiful even on a chill day. Everything about them is fantastic- the view, the variety, the conservatory, the history . Please go and donate if you can
