what a great place to walk around and see everything on this trail. Great day it was very interesting, soaked in history.

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

Great to see old cottages restored around battery point, Kelly steps was good to see. Take good walking shoes as it’s a little hilly but you get good views up there

A beautiful walk that shows the amazing artworks amongst the gorgeous houses in Battery Point. Is best undertaken in warmer weather! And make sure to wear comfortable footwear!

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... More
