Great Place to check out when in Hobart

A must see when visiting Hobart. We cycled around easily as mostly flat. Only minutes from the CBD with plenty to see from yesteryear

Loved the historic buildings, the harbour, the exercise. Battery point overlooks the harbour and the view is breathtaking. Nestled amongst the historic buildings, coffee shops are churning out the coffees faster than you can say "instant".

Just gorgeous - historic and a beautiful location. Lots of wonderful little places to poke around in and walk around the circus' on foot. Battery Point would be my chosen location if I ever live in Hobart, but I believe it has become quite expensive in comparison to the mainland prices.

Battery Point is a nice walk and will give you time to take in some of the earliest architecture of Hobart. Narrow streets that offer many beautiful old houses and a number of great coffee shops/restaurants in hamden Road. A few more interesting shops taking the plunge to set up - always love this area.

Beautiful area and great local cafe, which is a bakery and restaurant. There's also a post office in Battery Point, and it's well worth spending an hour walking around looking at the sights.

Loved Arthur's Square such cute cottages. The sweet shop in the center was a find of all the old type sweets and great Valhalla ice cream!

Such a beautiful area - you can just walk around and relax and enjoy the views and the old buildings. Plenty of little coffee shops in the area to pop into. Our accomodation was just around the corner (Lennas) so an easy walk.

Great food and galleries to visit especially significant during the Dark Mofo week. Easy to walk to and from your accommodation with a fine range of venues.
