It's on the way to the Botanical Gardens, and a pleasant stroll. Maybe nice for a picnic too, if it's sunny.

Key features are the War Memorial cenotaph, and the Regatta Grounds with its historic visitor seating stand including a wood chopping competition stand. It provides a hillside vantage point to look across the Derwent Harbour, then upstream to the dramatic sweep of the Tasman... More

The A.C. contains a fully equipped gym with showers and a range of pools including an olympic size competition pool and two others of varying depths and of course one for the... More

A vast change to the busier city down the road, it's a nice place to come to get some fresh air. If you have time head down to the botanical gardens as they are stunning.

Within easy walking or driving distance from the Hobart CBD, the Queen's Domain is a large area including sports grounds, indoor swimming facilities, Government House, a large Botanical Garden and many walking tracks. A great way to spend a couple of hours exploring.

I first spotted this landmark coming across the Tasman Bridge and got glimpses again when going to the Botanical Gardens. Queen's Domain is a cool looking castle that is next door to the Botanical Gardens (talk about a cool backyard!) and has a lovely, open grassy field buffering it from the road. It is the home of the The Hon.... More

Some grass mowing and some lovelly hut for BBQ's etcetera but the only thing it is used for is sport ( Swimming Pool, athletics. football ( AFL and Soccer) and a little bit of sightseeing. This could be made into a... More

Nothing to see here except great tracks of weedy Council land. Unless you need to use the sporting facilities steer clear.

So much to see in these gardens, or for a leisurely visit - a great place to take a seat and just enjoy the sun
