    Nestled in the heart of Hobart are the sheltered grounds, historic convict features, plant collections and significant trees of the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens - offering the best of Tasmania in one compact location.

    The majestic garden setting is ideal for individuals or the whole family offering an extensive program of activities, guided tours, events or simply take your time to enjoy our year-round breathtaking displays.

    At any time of year the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens encapsulates all that is wonderful about Tasmania in an experience to remember.

    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.

    • Heritage: Take in the Garden’s most significant trees and heritage landscapes, the walks above the Lily Pond (6) are rewarding and can be coupled with a visit to other elements of our built heritage, the Friend’s Cottage (29) and two remarkable convict-built walls, named after Governors Arthur (31) and Eardley-Wilmot (42).

    • Unique Flora: Learn more about Tasmanian Plants, walk through the Tasmanian Section (5) then take a look at our Fern House (23) which focuses on Tasmanian ferns. Visit the Greater Hobart Garden (4) to look at our local flora, and add the Subantarctic House (9) to experience the closely related plants of wind-blown Macquarie Island, halfway between here and the Antarctic.

    • Horticultural Displays: The Garden’s major horticultural displays are wonderful in all seasons. Start with the herbaceous plantings around the Friend’s Cottage (29) and the Lily Pond (6) and then take in the Friend’s Mixed Border (12) which extends along the length of the Eardley-Wilmot Wall (42). The Conservatory (10) and its surrounding beds of annuals house colourful, ever-changing displays.

    • Asia & Pacific Plants: A visit to three unique country of origin plantings makes for an interesting walk. The Chinese Collection (7) focuses on plants collected in the wild in the Yunnan Province of China. The New Zealand Collection (22) is one of the Gardens older plantings and the Japanese Garden (14) is a favourite with visitors.
