Description

This walk links several of the city’s historic parks where fountains, gravestones, semaphore stations and slipways provide glimpses into Hobart’s rich and fascinating past.

Depending on the season, you will also be surrounded by roses and spring bulbs in full bloom, bright splashes of autumn colour or welcome shade from towering trees. Why not bring a picnic and pause along the way?

Walking between the parks you will also stroll past many of Hobart’s architectural gems including Salamanca Place’s sandstone warehouses, the imposing façade of Parliament House and art deco office buildings.
