The Japanese garden here is so beautiful that it inspired our first trip to Japan. We love this place it is immaculate and welcoming. Staff and volunteers very knowledgeable. Map clearly help plot out a path. Fun for all ages.
I would recommend coming back here often as it changes so much with the seasons. My children have enjoyed these garden since they were very young and still love going now as teenagers. A great free family activity and there is often something special on...More
These gardens are a "must see". They have been established for over 150 years and contain a wide range of mature specimen trees. The Japanese Garden and Lake are particularly well worth seeing. Winter is not the best time to visit because many of the...More

Extremely inexpensive (donation only) way to while away many a relaxing hours for relaxing and picnics...beautifully maintained always something new and interesting to see and do for children and adults...
Yes it’s practically free, but it was looking a little tired all round, especially the Japanese garden. IMO in need of a bit of a refurb, although they would probably have to charge entrance fee to justify that which probably defeats the purpose of the...More
We walked from Hobart, through the soldiers memorial and back via the bay. Well-signposted most of the way and just 30 mins each way. Lovely green gardens, a conservatory with orchids and begonias and a sub-arctic house, along with a beautiful lily pond area. The...More

Some of the garden's 'rooms' aren't really season dependent - the sub-arctic, for instance, is always cold! Others have variations of foliage which make them interesting in the cooler months - the Japanese garden has deciduous trees that may still have a few leaves in June; if not, the shape of their branches is pretty. If it's a sunny day, and not too windy, the gardens are a lovely place to visit even in Winter. The restaurant faces north east and gets lots of sun. It serves good food too.
