The Strategic Master Plan for the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens articulates a 20-year management and budget framework for the long-term use, planning, conservation and enhancement of the Gardens, including the costs involved if there are to be new physical developments.

The objective is to better position the Gardens locally, nationally and internationally.

The plan identifies the challenges ahead, acknowledging contemporary environmental conditions, community needs and expectations. It establishes a framework to maintain a balance between established heritage and cultural values with development pressures and modern concerns for sustainability, continuing uses and future opportunities.

What might the Gardens of the future look like and how that can be integrated with those roles and values established two centuries ago?

The Plan was formulated in accordance with the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens Act 2002.  These plans can be downloaded below:
