Spent ages driving around and around in the lovely and picturesque Battery Point, but ni sculpture trail. Sadly missed this one. Needs better sign posting

Maybe we missed the “sculptures”, maybe the roads we walked were the boring roads OR maybe this is just an boring old part of town with a few old buildings and a few antique shops.......... you can decide

In much of Australia, any houses this old were knocked down a long time ago. The streetscapes looking up to the mountain are precious.

This is such an interesting spot. Take a wAnder along the quaint streets. It's marvellous. Go to the village for a coffee at the bakery. Check out the historic Arthur Circus and other old sandstone buildings.

Worth a wander through the old streets to get a sense of what early Hobart was like. Plenty of interesting old buildings and local nooks and crannies to explore - and a short walk to Salamanca and the wharves where all the tourist shops and...More

Spending some time exploring Battery Point is a must when visiting Hobart. If you decided to do so on foot then you need to be aware that some of the streets are very steep to climb. The period homes along the way are wonderful and...More
