At 14 hectares the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens are easily viewed over the course of a relaxed day. If your time is limited, you can tailor your walk to encompass your personal interests.
For instance, if you want to take in the Garden’s most significant cultural heritage landscapes and major iconic trees the walks above the Lily Pond would be rewarding and could be coupled with a visit to the Gatekeeper’s Cottage and the Gardens’ heritage walls, the Arthur and Eardley-Wilmot Walls.
If you want to learn about Tasmanian plants, walk through and discover the Tasmanian Collection then visit the Greater Hobart Garden to look at our local flora. You should also add the Subantarctic Plant House to experience the closely related flora of wind blown Macquarie Island.
The Gardens Visitor Centre is home to the Botanical Shop, Succulent Restaurant and Sprout Takeaway.
