Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went looking for this trail and stumbled across it but not at the beginning. The “sculptures” are simply numbers and most are quite boring to look at. However, the information about the numbers are rather interesting. But you have to a good imagination to visualise the descriptions. The start point is at the end of Salamanca Place (furthest from Hobart CBD) and you finish a few kilometres away almost at Wrest Point. In summary… The history is good - the sculptures are not!

We were staying at Battery Point and enjoyed the sculpture trail. It was a pleasant walk that provided an insight into the history of the area. Two great pieces of trivia were sculptures 313 - number of boats launched in the 1800s from Battery Point shipyards and 1909 - the year Errol Flynn birth at Sandy Bay. A further benefit was the option to stop for a coffee in Battery Point and a drink at Salamanca.

Good way to see Hobart and activity. Beautiful walk around the area and nice little food places along the way if you get hungry.

The Sculpture Trail incorporates nine different sculptures or information boards that have a story about a time, a date, a weight, a quantity or something else that links to that particular place. We found most to be very interesting.

We started this approximately 2 kilometre Trail just along from Salamanca Place and then followed the waterfront (Castray Esplanade) along next to the CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research Building then onto AJ White Park. We then walked up a rather steep section of Finlay Street before stopping for a coffee at Perch in Hampden Road.

We then followed it again along Clarke Avenue and Marine Terrace before a rather steep ascent down Derwent Lane to the waterfront.

We passed some lovely (and a few not so lovely) old houses and pubs and took in some good views of the Derwent Estuary.

Perhaps the most interest structure that we found was not a sculpture but the official Finishing Line Booth for the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race which was just near the CSIRO Building.

Loved spending time in Battery Point following the sculpture trail. Make sure you keep your fluids up by stopping at the gorgeous old pubs along the way!

This walk is through an area of charming housing with one notable excrescence and the occasional blot but generally, attractive cottages and houses, good costal views, a lovely church and numerous cafes and restaurants, well worth a visit.

We had 2 mornings in Battery Point, first we walked around taking in the sites & the historic architecture and the 2nd time we hired the escooters in Salamanca & rode them around which the locals were less than impressed but we had a great time!!

A wonderful walk around a beautiful historical neighbourhood. Waves from home owners along with the sounds of birds in the various old cottage gardens made this a glorious way to spend a Spring afternoon.

The sculpture trail is a great idea and a great excuse to wander some of the most beautiful parts of old Hobart.

Battery Point is the oldest part of Hobart and was home to ship builders, whalers, seamen and everything that you would expect from a wild old seafaring outpost. The area is simply full of stunning period home, almost universally maintained to perfection and many with priceless water views.

The sculpture trail itself is a good workout, this is not flat country! Online & printed info could be better, but we managed and as I said, it was a good way to get out for a good walk in a pretty special part of the world.
