We hopped off the hop on hop off bus and walked around. So glad we did. The Garden was lovely, especially the water feature, pond and conservatory.

Succulent Restaurant
May 2021
The Gardens are magnificent.
The Succulent restaurant needs attention.
The staff are lovely, venue lovely but menu not good.
Midday meals much too large for most! Stacks (burgers) are annoying and expensive as are most meals for a lunch visit.
The only dishes for light eating are soup and omelette.
Please .. some cheaper modest meals.

A pleasant stroll
May 2021 • Couples
We had a lovely relaxing walk around the gardens. We were particularly impressed with the Japanese Garden. This was an extremely tranquil place within the gardens.

Staff at the entrance were very friendly and professional while being rather helpful.

Loved the visit 👍👍👍

With exercise to boot ! A very pleasant walk and lunch at Succulents Restaurant to follow. We had loads of Eastern Rosellas on our travels which was a bonus .

Awesome in Autumn
Apr. 2021 • Couples
We love to visit great gardens, especially in Spring and Autumn. These didn’t let us down! Our favourite was the Japanese garden with stunning reds, golds and orange colours. Even if you’re not a keen gardener, take the time to visit!

A tranquil place
Apr. 2021
This was my first visit to the Gardens and I regret not having done so on previous trips. It is well established a the flora is beautiful. The time there was well spent and I would go again on another visit.

Loved it.
Apr. 2021
Absolutely loved the Botanical Gardens. Beautifully maintained grounds with beautiful glimpses of the water. The Japanese Gardens were great and the Subantarctic hut was a fun experience. It's quiet and peaceful and a lovely place to take a stroll. We walked from Henry Jones Hotel and took Soldiers Memorial Avenue and then a path through the woods to get there. Perfect experience.

Good place to stop by

We stopped by the gardens on our second last day to see some plants. As we were in the cradle mountain just past days it felt it was almost the same.

I loved the lake and waterlillies. The volunteers were very helpful when we arrived. We enjoyed lunch in the restaurant with beautiful views of the harbour.
