Corner of Davey St & Sandy Bay Rd, Hobart. Google Maps.
The original burial ground for the settlement of Hobart Town, and for many years the only one. It was closed after the establishment of Cornelian Bay. After sitting unused for fifty years, it was converted to a park in the 1920s. Some of the larger tombs remain in situ but all the other headstones were removed. The surviving stones have been built into memorial walls at the south-eastern end of the park.
No transcriptions, as they are available elsewhere. Although I did some years ago.

Album 1 is mostly individual stones (see here for more information).
Album 2 is a mixture, including photos taken during removal of headstones (pp. 4,5, 8, 13 & 14).

Location on Google Maps. Not sure when this cemetery was in the use. The State Library ‘s guide to cemetery records says “1846?” for the year it opened. Possibly land was obtained at the same time the synagogue was built. The known burials date from 1858-1893.
These are originally from a post on LiveJournal, when I was young and keen, and felt a need to transcribe headstones. The main entry for the cemetery is here.
