Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, Hobart

I recently visited the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens in Hobart, which is 200 years old this year.
The weather was perfect, with clear blue skies and a few fluffy clouds, very warm with a light breeze. It could not have been better for my first experience of the gardens.

The Subantartic Plant House
The Fernery

I left no stone unturned, and with my map in hand I explored every feature and every garden. There was the Chinese Collection, the Japanese Garden, the Subantarctic Plant House, the Conservatory and more.

There were cacti gardens, a fernery, a eucalyptus section, the Lily Pond and more.


And I could not resist buying a wonderful memento of my visit there, a lovely flowering gum canister.



I would highly recommend his unique and historical garden for all to visit.
