Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens
About Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens
The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens is a place where visitors can explore Australia’s unique flora and fauna as well as enjoy the many green spaces. They have an expansive system of trails, which allow them to offer something for everyone whether you are looking for some quick peace or want more active exploration with your family members on this fine day out!
The gardens were established in 1873 after two years following Sydney by SMS arrival ship - so it's not surprising that they boast some very old trees indeed; however what makes their location truly special? Well not only do we find ourselves nestled between mountains at one end but also close by to beaches.
Over 14 hectares there are plenty of places for visitors who want some quality time outdoors or just need their minds relaxed while they explore what this historic site offers them. Whether it be by taking an interest-based walk according to personal interests or sitting down with friends over breakfast at one of our restaurants inside The Herbarium building which also houses New South Wales' first museum about trees (the Subantarctic House).
