Parliament House Gardens are located adjacent to the historic Salamanca area; in fact, if you're visiting the markets there's a fair chance you'll walk right next to them.
They have, at the right time, sweeping annual displays with mature oaks, elms, limes and plane trees; some up to 150 years old.
This little park adjacent to the Hobart Parliamentary House is a great place to sit down, relax and watch the time pass by.
They had a display of Da VInci machines taking up some of the room when I was last there.
However, with its beautiful lawns and tall shady trees, it's guaranteed to put you in a relaxed state of mind.
You may get to see some famous Hobart official (not that you'd necessarily recognize him/her) or other Australian politician leaving the building.

Directions: Across from the Brooke Street Pier
