Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    If you have a car this is a must see but only on a clear day.
    Well worth the steep drive up
    Great drive up
    And there is a cold wind most days up there.

    Glorious gardens in a beautiful setting. The scenic sections provided lots of opportunities for family photos and a bride and groom on the day of our visit; lots of safe, open lawns for small children. For plant lovers, top quality, especially the focus on native species. Spectacular bird-life.

    We stayed for two nights. The room was large and comfortable , 2 windows, fireplace and bathroom beautifully decorated in the period as is the whole manor. I loved the colours used throughout. There is a pleasant dining room overlooking the lovely well kept gardens continental style breakfast provided with a kitchen for quests to cook their breakfast if required. For me this gave a relaxed, friendly feel and gives a chance to meet other guests and share experiences and to learn about the history of the house from the very helpful hostess. There is also a comfortable sitting room with port and chocolates, something I have not seen in a while and very relaxing after our evening meal. Parking is in the grounds so convenient. We very much enjoyed our stay and highly recommend.

    I came across this place while visiting the botanical gardens and it was a very pleasant little surprise. A small but very interesting display. I've never seen anything like it in any other botanical gardens. It's definitely worth going in for a few minutes.

    I travelled to Hobart for an interstate trip with family and stumbled across this park. It’s a great spot for kids to play as it’s has many different slides and equipment for kids of all ages. I love that it also had toilets available - which is not a common find in playgrounds. Loads of shade, picnic tables and seating. Definitely a great find!

    Modest, but attractive, city centre park near the harbour in Hobart, filled with intriguing colonial era monuments plus more modern ‘first native’ additions. The park is on a steep slope, but footpaths wind through it

    Always enjoy a walk here. Take it easy on the boardwalk or exercsie on the sand. Great playground for kids. New public facilities on the way. BBQs, plenty of open space, native birds and if you're lucky a dolphin or seal. Sailing club near by so often see yachts out and once a month there's vintage cars on display. Good coffee and breakfast options around too.

    This is a lovely bush walk, leading to Myrtle Gully Falls (past Secret Falls) and beyond.

    A peaceful oasis close to the city. The birdsong is probably my favourite thing about it, then the bush. I feel very fortunate to live within walking distance.

    This Reserve is located only about five kilometres outside of Hobart next to two reservoirs that were first constructed in the 1860's. The Sandy Bay Rivulet runs in front of the reservoirs. A roadway, single lane in some spots, snakes along the edge of the reservoirs.

    There were a total of 12 numbered BBQ sites (some undercover) each with their own parking areas. I understand that there is a site were you can book these at a cost.

    There was seating and playground equipment but we did not see anyone engaging in water activities. Also it appeared that dogs were not allowed.

    There were however several good walking paths. We walked up to the man-made Gentile Annie Falls, although it had been a long time since water had flowed over them.

    We thought it was a fantastic family picnic and BBQ site with good toilet facilities and room for children to ride bikes and scooters.

    I solo hiked to Cathedral Rock. The track does have signage at the beginning. But I still missed that and went up to the end of the road by mistake. Anyway once I returned to the track head I was ok. It’s a steep climb on an ankle twisting track at times. But the views are worth it. I went on to Montague Thumbs and joined up with the Wellington Falls and Pipeline tracks before catching a ride back to Kingston. Around 17km all up as a thru hike.

    If you do the rivulet track from the city, you end up in these gardens at the top. It is near the Cascade brewery and was very green at this time of year. There are picnic tables here.

    On the path to Myrtle Gully Falls, about 35 to 40 metres before, look to the left and you might see the evidence of a trodden path down. Brace yourself on a couple of the tree and descend to the river base, and you will then be able to see these lovely canyoned falls

    Happy exploring !

    It’s a beautiful little park with sweet houses around it. It is worth a walk by if you are in the area. Even if you just want to rest your legs and look at the flowers and let the kids play on the swings.

    sandy beach located in the suburb of Sandy Bay it is accessible by foot via the old suburb of Battery Point with a 30 minute walk. The only sandy swimming spot in Hobart except for Long Beach in Lower Sandy Bay. Home of Hobart's most expensive real estate.
