  • There are actually some beautiful houses from the early 20th century. Otherwise, you can't do much in the quiet area. For living certainly a nice place, from a tourist point of view not too exciting.

  • Battery point, you're looking for a statue plate or something. Actually, this is a district, a neighborhood name. There was a sign set out just to welcome the battery point. I couldn't find that after that anyway. Maybe you can take a picture in front of him. This is an interesting home, parks restaurant and a walking area for the reason of the view. I only learned that by asking. And I'm surprised. I've just took a few photos of it in the nearest princess park. What artificial:)

  • Half scavenger hunt, half history lesson this trail is a great romp through a delightful historical neighborhood. The biggest delight is looking at the many periods homes and gardens while the various signposts explain the history of this section of Hobart.
