Battery point is nice area, close to city. Period homes add to the charm of the area. We went in night and got some beautiful views of city lights and water.

A must for while in Hobart.. A definite place to visit to acquire a taste of the Hobart old. Filled with great shops and cafes, Lovely period homes add to the elegance of Battery point. Great Views Back to Hobart CBD and the Coast.

I loved our 2 days at Battery Point (had only planned on one day but loved it so much went back again). What a charming little village this is. Wandering the streets, walking along the waterfront. Definitely do the sculptures walk.

We went with friends, who knew the area, to walk around and to watch the fireworks and the start of 2017. Well worth a visit.
