The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens invites visitors to join one of our friendly guides on a 50 minute walking tour. Departing each day at 11am from The Hub, these small group tours take in the Garden’s highlights, bring to life the stories behind its creation, and provide insight into the conservation work we do to preserve Tasmania’s unique species for the future.

To book call 03 6166 0451 or reserve your place here.

We can also cater to your special interests and itinerary by offering tours at different times of day and adapting our routes to make the experience accessible for everyone. Contact the Visitor Experience Co-ordinator to arrange a unique experience just for you. Community and school groups also welcome.

Activities for School Students

Planning to bring a class to visit? Please let us know when you are coming and we will provide your students with a complimentary question and answer session at the gate.

For middle-upper primary students we have a specially-designed program that takes place in the Tasmanian Community Food Garden (the Patch). Children will get to explore the seasonal produce, learn the secrets of how we make things grow so well, and get involved by planting seeds.

For senior students, our guided tours can be tailored to meet the focus of your area of study. Get in touch to find out what we can offer.
