Luckily today is sunny day that I can enjoy a great time in the garden. There are many kinds of plants and really eye catching. Another thing is the garden locates next to Tas Bridge , it's a good point for photo taking.

I attended a Financial Planning presentation arranged by GDA Financial Services with James Purvis, a VERY well known expert in markets and investment proceses, who addressed the gathering. The room was quiet and well lit and the audio was excellent. Morning Tea and Coffee was provided by the catering staff at the Gardens and the scones and jam and cream... More

I absolutely love these gardens, they are truly beautiful & impressive & should not be overlooked when visiting Hobart. My family owned a nursery & landscaping business for 20 years - so I've seen a lot of gardens & this is one of the best. This wasn't my first visit to the gardens & it won't be my last. It's...

We visited the gardens today and at rather short notice we're lucky enough to have a volunteer Fran, drive us around the gardens in their buggy. There is a very reasonable fee for this service. Fran was particularly knowledgable about the plants and history of the gardens. We really enjoyed the visit. Spring is just around the corner and many... More

Well worth the visit to this beautiful garden. I love trees and I was not disappointed. Beautiful large trees of many varieties. European and Australian varieties. The Japanese garden was very calming just watching the water and the ducks. Every little path I followed was a nice surprise along the way and at the end. Lots of waterfalls to sooth... More

Definitely worth a visit when in Hobart. After visiting Salamanca market, I decided to head over to this garden for a chilled afternoon. Brought a book and some snacks with me. Did a stroll through the beautifully maintained garden. It even has a Japanese garden! Picnic spots are everywhere, great for children to run around, and of course, for solo... More
