“Battery Point - Lots of energy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Battery Point was a hive of activity when we were there as the Sydney to Hobart yacht race had just finished and the "Taste" festival was on. We spent a number of happy hours pottering about the shops, trying the eateries and walking around the waterfront.

“An interesting and enjoyable walk - worth doing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

There is a very English feel to the whole area. You can imagine the English arrivals over different decades building the houses they had liked at home but with their own personal touches and adaptations to suit a warmer climate. It all comes together very harmoniously and there are some lovely views as you walk back down to the sea. Very atmospheric.
