Located in Hobart, the lush gardens are home to more than 6,500 species of plants.
Set up way back in 1818, these sprawling gardens cover more than 13.5 hectares of lush green and colourful gardens, home to more than 6,500 species of which more than 400 species are endemic to the region. There are walking tours through all the different sections of the garden, and given the vast size of the place, you will definitely need some guided help getting around. There are various exhibitions such as the sub-Antarctic plant house, the refreshing herb garden, and also the largest connifer collection in the southern hemisphere! If you're travelling to Tasmania in October, make it an absolute point to visit the gardens as all the colours are blooming and the mesmerising annual tulip exhibition is also held at this time.
