TAS0809 003In the heart of Hobart is the peaceful and lovely St. David’s Park. However, prior to 1926 it was St. Davids Cemetery, the resting place of many of Van Diemen’s Land first European settlers. Having fallen into disrepair at that time and viewed as a public eyesore and hangout of ne’er do wells the headstones were removed and placed in a memorial wall adjacent to the newly created park (many of the larger monuments remain within the landscaped park). It’s a fascinating place with many stories to tell and one of my favorite spots in Tassie.
