O – Octopus and old Botanic Gardens

At Beauty Point you have the Platypus House and also the Seahorse World, where you can also see an octopus.



Old Botanic Gardens

Here in my home state of Tasmania, we have the second oldest Botanic Gardens in Australia. In 1816, Royal Botanic Gardens was developed in Sydney and two years later, the Botanic Gardens were started on the Domain in Hobart Town.

This image is from a French Expedition to Hobart in 1837-1840 and is held in the Tasmanian Archives and Heritage Office – Allport Library
