These would have to be the most beautiful botanic gardens I have seen in my travels around Oz. So so much colour at the moment being spring. And Tasmania just has so many beautiful species that grow well. It's the first time I spent more than an hour in a garden. Could have spent even longer but they were closing at 5.30. 2 hours gave me enough time to breeze over everything but would have loved to have spent about half a day there. The place is definitely a feast for the senses, especially sight and smell. But with a sizeable herb garden taste can come into it too, though I am not sure if I was meant to lol.
My one disappointment is that the day I went the sub-antarctic plant house was closed due to a cooling system malfunction. Would have been good to see what actually survives that sort of inhospitable environment.
This is a must do activity if you're in Hobart.
