The beautiful Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens are close to the Hobart CBD. A five minute drive will take you just past Government House , across the road from the Tasman Bridge.

Established in 1818 they cover 13.5 hectares and are definitely worth a morning or afternoon to explore. There is a lovely conservatory, a Japanese garden and other displays.

The gardens are open free of charge every day. For more information check out the links below.
