Saint David's Park
Hobart, TAS 7000
+61 3 6238 2886
Setting for Bellerive Boardwalk
, and a convenient respite from the attractions of neighboring Salamanca Market
, this pretty park is a short stroll away from the City Center. The sweeping lawns and well-established trees are a fine counterpoint to the delightful garden samplings. History buffs will want to spend an hour or two browsing the headstones lining the wall on the Salamanca side, for here was the location of Hobart's first cemetery in 1804. Famous names rest alongside ordinary citizens, including the first white child born in Tasmania and victims of shipwrecks lost on the treacherous Tasmanian coast.
