What are the best parks in Hobart

Buy a coffee to go and spend some time in the quiet serenity of one of Hobart’s parks. The open spaces are perfect spots for picnics with your travel companions. What better way is there to experience and enjoy the fresh air of Tasmania?  Local parks in the suburbs are quaint and peaceful, but the Royal Tasmanian Botanic Gardens and Queens Domain are the parks that you simply must make time for during your Hobart holiday.

Royal Tasmanian Botanic Gardens

The Royal Tasmanian Botanic Gardens, a five-minute drive from Hobart's CBD, are home to in-bloom flowers, Japanese gardens, lily ponds, and wildlife. A popular destination among locals and tourists alike, the gardens are well-maintained and peaceful, featuring some unique and beautiful collections. In the Botanic Gardens, you'll even find a Sub Antarctic Plant House – the only one of its kind in the world.

A stone's throw away from the Royal Tasmanian Botanic Gardens is Queens Domain, a gorgeous area of natural grasslands that provide a habitat for native flora and fauna. Set aside some time to wander around the area. Queens Domain promises great bird-watching, cool shade, and picturesque views of the water.

Franklin Square

Unwind in Franklin Square with a packed lunch or takeaway coffee. In the square, you'll see a symbol of Tasmania's colonial history: a statue of Sir John Franklin (a former governor and Arctic explorer). The park's central position makes for good viewing of the surrounding historic buildings, and it's also a great place to people-watch. With the area a meeting place for working locals, you're sure to get a sense of the city's community and atmosphere.
