What you need to know

Perched on a hillside in an easily accessible location from eastern Hobart, the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens are one of the oldest of their kind in the world, and make up for their relatively small size to those of bigger cities by being perhaps even more beautiful. The gardens feature an extensive collection of rare and threatened native plant cities - over 6500 species of plants in total can be found here - and incorporate a number of lovely water vistas to help break up the greenery and form a lovely, relaxing atmosphere. It's perhaps Hobart's most enjoyable spot for a picnic, and the perfect spot for a leisurely stroll through its impeccable-groomed garden beds. Every plant here is both healthy and well categorised, and each section of the Royal Tasmanian Botanic Gardens brings with it its own unique charm.

The garden is divided up into several smaller sub-sections, each with a new point of emphasis: the Japanese Gardens are tranquil and incorporate eastern architecture from Hobart's sister city of Yaizu; the Sub-Antarctic Plant House is expansive and the largest of its kind in the world; the Lily pond offers a lovely blend of water and lilies themselves that's the ideal spot to relax and read a book; and the Fern House is both extensive and refreshing. There's also a great little restaurant that's home to both a gift shop and kiosk for those looking for refreshment, as well as clean toilet facilities for those looking to linger a little longer here. Given that it's entirely free - although a gold coin donation is requested - the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens serve as an incredibly scenic showcase of Tasmanian nature all for minimal investment.
