Battery Point Sculpture Trail Reviews
A walk into the past, with a very real sense of history. These houses are still occupied today (an upscale neighbourhood), so it's like experiencing the past in the present. more »
Found this a really enjoyable and interesting walk. We stopped at Jackman and McRoss for our coffee. Lots to see and do. more »
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.
