“Could be so much better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

This is a pretty and interesting place but lacks visitor amenities, as pointed out by several previous reviewers. There is nowhere to sit and admire the activities, no maps or informative signs and no public facilities (loos in particular!) It's rich in history and cultural qualities but could be developed so much more. It's a tourist mecca waiting to happen.

“Bring your camera”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

Lovely if you enjoy seafaring ambiance (not everyone does!) but we find the old harbour area a delight - however, the whole is spoilt by ugly sheds, lack of visitor amenities,such as decent & plentiful loos, non-existent interpretation & with few seats to relax your tired toes or tarry awhile to take in the sights & sounds of this bustling area. Salamanca around the corner, with the wonderful, atmospheric Saturday Market is another great treat, although marred by limited & frightful toilets & minimal seating opportunities to enjoy the many taste treats or, to just rest up between retail forays - such a shame, as Hobart should be throwing out the welcome mat here, BIG time! However, if you are forewarned, then please take the time to enjoy this delightful area, with many interesting shops, pretty views and photo opportunities aplenty, for you never know the Bob Barker may be in port after fighting to save the whales, or one of the great cruise liners moored up against one of the World's ugliest sheds, or a flotilla of yachts riding the waves beyond Sullivan's Cove... & if you're really up for it, you can hike 'round Battery Point, too. Enjoy!
