We followed a self guided walking trail from the net and spent a very pleasant 3 hours walking around Battery Point. Lots of historical buildings to admire and plenty of coffee shops, restaurants and hotels to pop into to revive oneself. Views of the river are superb. There' s a truly wonderful park, Princes Park, that outlines the history of Battery Point. Take the time to read the info boards. Very amusing.

Walking around this area is like being in another country .
It takes you back to another era. The variety of houses makes walking around and looking fun. We also went to a historic house there which was beautifully maintained & we would recommend that.

The homes are lovely and the area is very pretty. Did the hop on hop off bus tour and then went back and did a walk around the area.

If you can walk it you will see all the old houses and area of Hobart past. We only did it by car and was able to still find the hidden gem. Well worth a look

We walked around this area and i have to say i fell in love. This place adds another dimension to Tassie. The homes are quaint, the walk is peaceful and the views are relaxing. Take your camera and go for a stroll!
