Great place to kick back for a few hours and check out a nice selection of trees and plants. Nothing too extravagant or no breathtaking views but still definitely worth a visit. Close to Hobart centre.

This is a wonderful garden, smaller than other botanical gardens but the quality is wonderful. It has a wonderful greenhouse in the middle with stunning begonias. Lovely outdoor lifestyle with everyone enjoying the clean, green and glorious colours of the garden. A must see in the City.

When you have raced around viewing the sights of Hobart and the surrounds and the body needs a recharge visit the Botanical Garden. A lovely place to stroll around, relax and picnic. Currently there is a temporary cafe while renovations are carried out, however, it is still good with the deck area having nice views across the gardens. Our 7... More

These gardens are a wonderful way to spend a day just enjoying the wonderful variety of vegetation and birdlife. Also the Japanese garden is wonderfuly peaceful and recharging. Can get a bit cold when the sun gets behind the mountain, so take something very warm to put on.. Otherwise a must see attraction in Hobart, and best of all its... More

It's one of the most organized and beautiful gardens I have seen so far. Better than the one is Sydney. They have an information centre at the gate. Free guided tours. You can walk around and soak into the beauty of the vegetation. It's that kind of place that requires a minimum of an hour to explore and engage.

This is worth the trip from the centre of town (which is a nice walk along the waterfront). Lovely gardens. Especially the glass house and the small lake with water lillies and a white bridge as if it was straight out of Monet's waterlillies paintings at Giverny. Save time for refreshments at the café.

We needed more time for this Loved the take on this garden - the 'Friends of the Garden' were only to happy to chat about the interesting hidden gems! 1. Not that I'm a tapestry person, but i appreciated the range of stitches & the work involved - ask to see them. 2. The subantartic display is a must! It... More

My friends and I went for a jog from the hotel and ended at the Botanical Gardens. It was stunning and very relaxing. We spent at least 2 hours here and lost track of time. A great place for those with green thumbs or children.
