All reviews scones devonshire tea great view worth the climb gift shop tea room friendly staff no idea wooden steps walk up hidden gem home made small museum short drive well worth the visit entry fee worth the effort
Today I have had the best scones I have ever tasted at the Shot Tower tea rooms downstairs. The gentleman who served us was absolutely wonderful, I ordered a pot of tea and he bought out a pot of hot water as well. The serve...More
Took the scenic route home to Kettering with our guests. The Tower was open on the Sunday of the long weekend.
Stopped for 10 minutes and stayed an hour!
Worth the climb and those that didn’t want the steps had the best coffee!
During our journey around Tasmania, one of the first historic places my wife and I visited was the Shot Tower. This 60 meter tall building was completed by Joseph Moir in 1870 after an eight year construction process. During my visit to the Shot Tower,...More
Just a short drive from central Hobart is this fun and informative attraction. It's inexpensive but really interesting. There were quite a few teenagers there when I went who all seemed to be enjoying the experience too. The climb isn't too bad although you may...More

Once at the very top, we had beautiful views of this...More

Hidden gem with a nice little tea house. If you've ever wondered how those musket balls were made, this is the place to find out. Climb the steps for a great view and finish it off with a nice cup of tea and a bikky
Stunning building on the side of the Chanel Highway in very leafy Taroona.
We didn't climb the tower on this occasion and the entry fee was prohibitive for us and we couldn't justify the cost. Same with the very luscious looking Devonshire Tea at $14,...More
A hidden gem this one. Fascinating story about shot and how it is made (I had no idea). The tower steps seem thin and flimsy but are obviously safe enough. The views from the top are stunning. Well worth a visit.
Didn't climb tower but paid to view museum where we were shown a short video on tower. Thought cost was a bit steep to watch a short video and read history of tower, was not much else in museum to see. Price to climb might...More
