The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Garden, located at the western end of the Hobart Tasman Bridge, faces the Strait and is about 30 minutes'walk from the city centre and the pier. The Botanical Garden was built in 1818 and is one of the earliest national botanical gardens in Australia. The botanical garden covers an area of 14 hectares. In addition to planting and nurturing a wide variety of local plants, it also displays many trees, flowers and plants in Europe and Asia. There are many kinds of conifers in the forest, which is the first in the southern hemisphere. There are many precious trees in the garden, some of which date back to the nineteenth century. Organic collocation of various plants enables botanical gardens to show people scenery pictures with different styles in different seasons. First visit the botanical garden greenhouse on the east side of the gate. The Australian yellow sandstone building was designed by Ira Thornicroft, Director of Architecture, and completed in 1939. The wall stones were taken from the sandstone of the demolished Hobart General Hospital. Walk in greenhouses to enjoy plants, or rest in seats near sandstone fountains. The greenhouse is full of flowers throughout the year. Greenhouses are usually closed for several weeks in winter for maintenance. After visiting the greenhouse, I came to the Subantarctic Botanical Museum. The plants unique to the high-latitude sub-Antarctic islands are shown here, while the cold fog reflects the moist and cold environment of their remote homes. These plants, mainly from Macquarie Island, were collected by scientific examiners during their field visits to Macquarie Island. Walking into the museum, you can hear the sounds of wild animals on Macquarie Island, including seals, penguins, albatrosses, endless wind and rain, which give you the illusion that you are really in the Antarctic region. The Subantarctic Botanical Museum was opened to the public on 13 October 2000. The Botanical Museum aims to replicate the appearance and environmental conditions of Macquarie Island and serve as a laboratory for plant cultivation in the area. The arc-shaped interior wall is painted with murals depicting the various environments of the island, while the landscape is decorated with plants, moss and rocks collected from Macquarie Island. To the east of the Rose Garden is the French Memorial Garden. There is a sculpture entitled "Voyage to Australia and New Zealand". The sculpture was created in 1972 by Australian sculptor Stephen Walker, who won the Australian Members'Medal of Zoe in 1985. On the afternoon of March 4, 1772, two French vessels, the Marquis of Castrey and the Maskalin, discovered the present-day coast of Tasmania. They are the first Europeans to appear in 130 years. In commemoration of the bicentenary of the first French discovery trip to Tasmania, Stephen Walker created the sculpture, which was displayed in the French Memorial Park as an acknowledgement of the contributions made by early French explorers and scientists to the discovery of our island state. Hobart and Kazujin, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan are sister cities, so there is also a specially designed Japanese garden in the botanical garden (east of the French Memorial). The Japanese Garden, officially opened in 1987, was designed by Japanese landscape architect Kazuo Harada, emphasizing the traditional Japanese garden elements of wood, stone and water. The plants in the garden are mainly made up of Japanese original and selected varieties. In autumn, they are characterized by Japanese maple trees. Waterways and related tea houses, water trucks and bridges are the main landscapes in the garden.
