An exploration of subterranean Hobart. The rich and colourful history of the once open but now buried waterways - including the Hobart Rivulet, Domain Park Rivulet, and Sandy Bay-Wellington Rivulet. The book includes details of tunnels and drains stretching back to the very start of Hobart's first settlement in Sullivans Cove. Some of these have only recently been rediscovered. Other topics examined are burial grounds, the installation of water, gas and sewerage systems together with basement shops, homes and places of entertainment. Unexpected events revealed include the formation of the Liberal Party in Tasmania, and the excavation of graves on the site of an old Campbell Street convict era cemetery. Underground Hobart contains an excellent range of photographs highlighting all aspects of the world - and life - 'beneath the city'.
