What a lovely, lovely walk! Don't go for the sculptures. Nothing less than pathetic really. But the architecture is a delight. Beautiful historic cottages in prime position in Battery Point. Every turn a treat with a harbour backdrop. Our Wintery meander was a highlight of...More

I started from the docks and followed the trail nearly to wrest point. It's pretty quiet, lots of opportunity to see some typical Hobart architecture and great views. I probably wouldn't bother as a "must do", but I was looking for some focus for a...More

Great to see old cottages restored around battery point, Kelly steps was good to see. Take good walking shoes as it’s a little hilly but you get good views up there

A beautiful walk that shows the amazing artworks amongst the gorgeous houses in Battery Point. Is best undertaken in warmer weather! And make sure to wear comfortable footwear!

Did the Sculpture Trail with my teenage daughter while we were in Hobart. Just over 1km so not too daunting. Since we were looking for the numbers it didn't feel like a walk (which we struggle to get them to do on a weekend). The...More

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

At the height of the Crimean war in 1854, Governor Denison warned the possibility of a Russian aggression. They quickly built a battery to secure Hobart. Now, all that is forgotten, except for the history panels. The canon is not there any longer! Now this...More
