Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens
The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens are within walking distance, about two kilometres north of the city centre. There is a path running beside the railway which leads to the lower entrance to the gardens and which will avoid walking along the main road. These gardens were established in 1818, only two years after Australia’s first botanical gardens in Sydney, and they are some of the most pleasant gardens in the country. A world first is the Subantartic Plant House which creates an environment for plants from the subantartic to survive. A panoramic mural by John Lendis illustrates Macquarie Island where the plants were collected from.
St. David's Park
St. David's Park was once a graveyard and there are still tombstones dotted about it which make interesting reading. Considering its proximity to the city centre, it is a very pleasant little park in which to relax for a few minutes. Corner of Sandy Bay Road and Davey Street.
