The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens in Hobart, is Australia’s cool climate garden, with a number of unique collections including Australia’s only Subantarctic Plant House. With a total of 14 hectares, visitors can take time to relax and explore. Established in the early years of the colony, just 2 years after Sydney, it is Australia’s second oldest Botanic Gardens.
The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens invites visitors to join one of our friendly guides on a 50-minute walking tour. Departing each day at 11 am, 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. Custom tours can be tailored to create a memorable and educational experience. Or uncover and explore the Gardens in comfort on a scenic one hour buggy tour.
The Gardens offer a range of scenic locations to host special events and there are also function rooms that can be hired for corporate needs.
We have many botanically inspired, locally made products which make great gifts to take home. Come and enjoy our space and peruse our collection of homewares, gifts, books, jewellery, kids section and keepsakes.
Stay for lunch with a view at Succulent Restaurant or grab a coffee or snack at Sprout cafe.
