If history and beautiful historical homes/cottages (some with very interesting stories behind them) are your thing then Battery Point is well worth a wander through! There are a few cafes and bars if you need a break and great views of the water from Princess Park and a playground for those with children in tow. Quite charming...

This is where it all started. Check out the small quaint local shops and houses. Arthurs Circus (a circular street) is a must if you go to this area, as this was where it all begun. A beautifully located suburb of Hobart and one which commands great views and real estate prices to match

Spent a long weekend in Hobart and went for a walk each morning through the streets of Battery Point. Was delighted with the variety of architecture, as well as the amount still left. Had afternoon tea at Jackman and McRoss great coffee and fabulous cakes.

I took a sightseeing bus around Hobart and we passed through battery point, the first thing I thought was that it was very colourful. It is a beautiful area, with cute and amazing houses, nice restaurants, great views, people walking everywhere... Charming.

I like to see all the old buildings and early settlement areas. The area around Battery Hill is amazing to view some of Australia's oldest.
A friend of mine told me it reminded him of his home town of Greenwinch UK.
The Walk from Sandy Bay via Battery Hill to Salamanca is a must.
