We had a fabulous guide. Tour mixed up with history, current events, meeting locals and garden workers and how the garden works to protect the worlds stock and diversity of seeds with other millennium project participants.

Really great location for a walk. We used this as a break from activities. Easily accessed from CBD by walking or scooter. Enjoyed the stroll through the lovingly kept gardens. Perfect weather for us!

The gardens are beautiful, overlooking the river and seeing these hundreds of year old trees was just stunning.

The Antarctic display was well worth a pop in as well.

Make sure you give yourself at least a couple of hours to see the gardens. They are quite spread out and are quite hilly.
I didn’t see all the features but what I did see was impressive and well maintained.
It’s a hike to get there from the city, I walked there at the end of a long day, but caught the Red Decker by us back for $3.

A great morning spent exploring the botanic gardens. We especially liked the Japanese garden and can imagine how beautiful it would look in the spring. The succulent restaurant was a good place for a coffee break or cream tea!

The Japanese garden was absolutely fantastic. Gorgeous design and so well done. Very peaceful and lovely with all the little private areas. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great place to unwind from the city life. Loved the edible garden, tried a fejoa and got to know what we can plant in Tassie's climate.

Beautiful autumn visit to the gardens. Greeted by enthusiastic volunteers at the front gate and given a map and a suggestion of the best way to walk around the gardens
We saw the majestic tall trees, the native garden, edible garden, and the stunning Japanese garden. Not to be missed
