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.

    The tour of this wonderful house by Heather was fascinating. Heather has the most incredible knowledge of the history of the families who lived there and the whole tour was enthralling. It is a definate must-see for anyone visiting Hobart as an interesting counterpoint to the various convict sites.

    I do not know what to say. We did a 1 hour guided tour - Mark was our guide and we had a group of around 20 people. The tour and his commentary was exceedingly moving. How they have marked on the ground with pavers and gravel the rooms etc. is haunting.
    Incredibly moving is the wall with the names of mothers who gave birth, names and ages of the children many of whom died very young.
    I can't say more than this was incredibly moving and well worth it.

    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.

    There are many ways to get to the lookout, signal station, and fabulous retaurant atop Mt Nelson, but walking the Truganini Track (about 2kms) from Cartright reserve on Sandy Bay Road is one of the best. It's a relaxing leafy experience with an abundance of birds. Moderate fitness is required as it climbs 300 metres. As a mid-70's couple we found it reasonably challenging, but we enjoyed a fabulous meal break at the restaurant, and an even more welcome coffee on completion. Note the Cartright reserve coffee van is not always open. We have marked this experience down from 5 star to 4 as the track needs some repair, with many of the steps getting old and by-passed. The slight downmark to this experience is about the state of the track. NOT a negative reflection on the interest of the signal station, or the restaurant. The staff and food there are top-notch. Having visited signal stations in the north of the State, Port Dalrymple (Georgetown), Mt. Direction (also a great walk), and Windmill Hill (Launceston), we can say that the information and historical memoribilia displayed at Mt Nelson is easily the best. Highly recommended.

    We went on a Friday to the shops which must carry 80% Tasmanian goods to be located here. It was nice to see the crafts, locally made goods and different artisans. We look forward to seeing the Salamanca market which is only on Saturdays.

    A lovely part of the harbour, just to hang out, especially on a sunny day day, watching the world go by, whilst enjoying the beautiful scenery.

    So much to do in such a beautiful city. Battery Point an especially beautiful part to be based in.
    Needed a car due to hills, unless very fit - parking is fairly easy to find.
    Drive up to Mt Wellington on a clear day; Salamanca area great to explore with great eateries etc, including Saturday markets; Constitution Dock, Cascade Brewery and Mawson Hut museum were all highlights. Botanical Gardens so worth a visit.
    Wineglass Bay cruise on the East Coast, with lunch, was also great - approx 3hrs drive to meet cruise from Hobart accom. A relaxing and beautiful week.

    Beautiful old Cathedral with magnificent stained glass windows. If you are lucky enough to be visiting, or walking past when the bells are rung, you are in for a treat!

    Crossed the bridge several times in our travels around town - it looks good and traffic flows okay but too many vehicles for me to do anything but drive - no sightseeing

    Modest, but attractive, city centre park near the harbour in Hobart, filled with intriguing colonial era monuments plus more modern ‘first native’ additions. The park is on a steep slope, but footpaths wind through it

    It provides a wonderful view of Hobart and the Tasman Bridge. Well worth the detour when travelling from the Airport to Hobart.

    As we were staying at Crest Waterfront, the pier was but a short walk. I didn't realise that it was a pontoon structure until mentioned by someone on our boat cruise. When I checked, I discovered that it is a four storey floating pier. The MONA ferry operates from there and its a stop for the Red Decker, Mt Wellington Bus, Skybus and others. Good variety of bars and restaurants, and Tasmanian produce stallholders.
