These parks and gardens give ample open space to enjoy the outdoors for those who live and work in the city. The old style Federation and Victorian style terraces give a beautiful streetscape.

"Royal Botanical Gardens"

When you approach Hobart from the South, coming off the Tasman Bridge you are greeted with the Queens Domain, and beautiful undeveloped area of the city, and a mecca for botanists. That’s because it is the home of the Royal Botanical Gardens, with its stunning display of native and international plants and trees. It’s Antarctic exhibit is a must-see. The main entrance to the gardens is through impressive gates at Lower Domain Road, although there is another gate near the car park just off the Domain Highway.
