About Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens

The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens are located in Hobart, Tasmania's harbour-side capital city. Established in 1818 on the western banks of the Derwent River, the gardens cover 13.5ha and showcase 6,500 species and varieties of plants, including more than 400 Tasmanian species. You can take a guided tour to see features that include the largest public conifer collection in the southern hemisphere, a peaceful Japanese garden and stunning conservatory. Breathe in the perfume of the traditional herb garden and visit Pete's Patch, a vegetable plot designed by Tasmanian gardening personality Peter Cundall. See rare plants from Macquarie Island in the sub-Antarctic plant house and stroll along historical Arthur Wall.
