Walking south along Davey Street from Constitution Dock will take you to this beautifully maintained parkland. The trees are colourful particularly in autumn, and with a range of sculptures and other points of interest, it is worth more than a casual look. Take some time...More

This is a lovely park, with lots of opportunities to walk and enjoy nature. Interestingly enough, a part of this park was dedicated to tombs, many tombs in fact. Nearby there were monuments of famous people. There were many flowers and lots of people were...More

There are headstones mounted on walls for you to look at. The gardens are also lovely with a large gazebo in the middle. Worth a visit if you are into the headstones.

This is a lovely place to go for a stroll if you are visiting Salamanca Place. The trees are beautiful and the tombstones around the walls provide an interesting insight into early colonial life.

This park is ideally situated for a retreat for half an hour’s relaxation following a walking tour of the waterfront. It’s situated just behind the Parliament Building. Beautifully laid out and maintained. Sit in the shade and watch the world go by....

This park is a nice patch of green right on the edge of the city and back of Parliamnet House. It is well maintained and a good place to stroll and relax but not special.

The park is smaller than expected and it is quiet and well designed. There are several graves of dignitaries still remained on site. There is a wall plastered with grave markers by the Supreme Court. It is interesting to have a quick read.
