For living certainly a nice place, from a tourist point of view not too exciting.

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.
