Walked there from central Hobart using a stylish footbridge and a war memorial footpath. The gardens are quality, but not large, so you can see it all in an hour or so. There are lots of flowers in December and it looks fantastic. Don't miss the lilypond and Japanese garden.the

Thank you Lorella L for your review! The Gardens are an excellent spot for a day visit, or just a few hours, and we're glad to know you found your way to be able to enjoy the interesting plants and flowers. While a bit of a walk to/from the city, the Red Decker bus does offer a discount rate for RTBG visitors ($8 round trip) - it does make the travel time a bit easier on the feet! We hope you can return to the Gardens for another visit soon.

Thank you, amfasnacht for your review. There is so much beauty to see in the Gardens and, as Australia's premiere cold-climate gardens, the colder months showcase how beautiful the changing seasons can be! We're glad to hear you experienced the beauty of the Gardens, and we hope you can return for another visit soon.
