      Its slopes contain the last remnant of Hobart's original endemic grassland, home to a variety of native birds, including eastern rosella, grey-breated silvereye and yellow wattle bird.
      Aboriginal middens have been found on the Domain, giving evidence of human habitation long before the first European colonists arrived in 1803.
      Since then, the Domain has had a variety of uses, from the 1841 construction of the Queens Battery (near today's Cenotaph), built to defend Hobart from attack by sea, to the 1997 opening of the The Hobart Aquatic Centre.
      In 1894-1895 an impressive Italian Renaissance-style building in the same area hosted the Tasmanian International Exhibition. Anti-conscription rallies were held there during the early years of World War I, and after the war, a tent city for the homeless sprang up there.
      The Domain is the site for a range of sporting venues - cricket, football, tennis, athletics and swimming all have facilities within walking distance of the city.
