All reviews salamanca place jackman mcross princes park hampden road historic area the cottages narrow streets step back in time self guided lovely walk walk around sandy bay salamanca markets walking tour visiting hobart circus architecture
This is just a short walk up steps behind the Salamanca Arts Centre and the Hobart waterfront. Many of the late 19th/early 20th century homes have been carefully restored and there’s a village atmosphere. The blend with discreet modern architecture works well.
Once we realised we were not looking for stone/bronze/concrete sculptures per se, but in fact NUMBERS, we really enjoyed looking for them along this coastal/residential walk. The numbers signify a point of interest, a moment in history, an event. The information is given on a...More
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
Battery point is a very interesting place from historical homes,churches and buildings.
Plenty to see heaps of boutique shops plenty of eating places.
Well worth the visit wear a good pair of walking shoes very narrow streets.
Just enjoy it.
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

Battery point itself is a nice neighborhood so you could walk around and enjoy the buildings, the water fronts, and also on clear-days the view to Mt. Wellington. Salamanca market (only on Saturdays) and Salamanca place area is nice with plenty of diners and cafes. From Salamanca place you could easily walk to Brooke St Jetty areas. There is dedicated shuttle to go to Mt. Wellington which could be booked at the tourist information centre. If you go to information centre there is 'Tours Tasmania' company which provides many day tours option (start as early as 7-am pick up and return to Hobart in the evening round 6-7 pm, check out the brochure which is available there). Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery is just very close to the information centre and it's free entry. If you would like to do some 'museum marathon', the Maritime museum (with entry fee) is also nearby and the Mawson's Hut (with entry fee) is right at the corner. Another option is the art museum MONA (also with entry fee for tickets and trip there could be via a dedicated ferry or shuttle, tickets could be purchased at their counter inside the Brooke St Jetty). Port Arthur is another good historical site but you might need to book a tour there combined with other destinations to seize the day (I tried the 'Port Arthur & Tassie Devils' day tour and quite like it). If you are into some walk-amongst-nature, visit the Royal Botanical gardens (1-2 hours inside is sufficient). My faves are the Japanese garden and the sub-arctic house. From inside the garden there is great view to the Tasman Bridge as well. Regarding the day-tour, I also like the 'Mt Field, Mt Wellington & Bonorong' day-tour, with some light range of walking inside the trails and a visit to Bonorong wildlife sanctuary. I hope you could use some ideas now to explore and enjoy Hobart.
