On Christmas Day, I took the bus out to the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens – and was most impressed. The Gardens are laid out in a stately, English fashion. The displays are incredible, the views are breath taking, and the Garden was free.
The Gardens had a restaurant, but a bit expensive, so when I went after that, I would either buy lunch in town or take something from home. You might as well eat outside in Hobart’s most beautiful spot.
I noticed that on Christmas Day, there were lots of picnics.
When I was ready to go, I met a young Korean, and she was walking back to town. So we walked back together - she was staying at one of the hostels. This was about a 25 minute walk back to downtown, and then I took the bus to Sandy Bay.
