The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens is committed to the safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers.

We encourage everyone to:

  • Practice social distancing (keep 1.5m away from others)
  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water
  • Stay home if you are unwell and get tested

Face masks remain a valuable protection against the spread of COVID-19.  Public Health encourages people to wear a mask if you are in a setting where you can not physically distance, work in a public-facing role or you are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19.  Please visit for up-to-date information and advice.

Please respect our staff and volunteers by keeping a safe distance from them, even when outdoors!

Thank you for your cooperation.
