Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens
The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens opened in 1818 and its impressive collection of indigenous plants, trees and unique Asian-inspired gardens span some 35 acres of scenic countryside. Perhaps the garden’s most unusual exhibit is the Subantarctic Plant House, which displays plants from the remote Macquarie Island. In addition to environmental conditions that mimic the wild, audio from the island—like sounds of Elephant seals and penguins—is also piped throughout the space, giving visitors a full sensory experience.

After wandering the grounds, relaxing by the lily pond or exploring the French Memorial Garden and Fountain, stop by the Royal Tasmanian’s restaurant, which sources produce from its very own vegetable garden for a truly Tasmanian farm-to-table experience.

Practical Info

The gardens are open daily from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. from April through September, and until 6:30 p.m. from October through March. The gardens are located on Lower Domain Road in Queens Domain, two kilometers from Hobart. The entry fee is by donation.
Address: Lower Domain Rd, Queens Domain TAS 7000, Australia
