The second oldest botanic gardens in the country - almost 200 years old! Loved the variety of plant species, and the community garden. Terrific to see the Wollemi pine trees prospering. ABC was filming segment for Gardening Australia whilst we were there. Fantastic views and great cafe on site.

The staff at the gardens were very helpful. Everything is so well laid out and easy to find your way around. Beautiful wattles, camellias, azealas and rhodendrons in flowers. Bulbs were flowering everywhere and the perfume from then was great.

Well set out, close to Hobart but a nice escape from the urban. Love the Japanese garden - tranquility. The cacti house is also worth a look. Nice open areas with plenty of room for a picnic and for the kids to run around. Great walking areas to take a stroll. Well worth a visit - time it for Spring... More
