The best things in life are free; so the saying goes and the Botanical Gardens in Hobart certainly add credence to that statement.
The Gardens are open every day from 8am to 5pm/6.30pm and entrance is free.
There's a visitor's centre with giftshop and restaurant inside the gardens and a toilet nearby. More often than not there's an exhibition on to add even more to your visit. Spring is obviously a good time, along with autumn but these shots were all taken in late summer.
You can catch a bus from the CBD or the red tourist bus regularly stops outside the gate.
They have an eclectic display of varied vegetation from around the world and it's situated on a hillside with nice veiws over the Derwent.
