“Tourist area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

Nothing particularly interesting about the area. Hobart is a pretty quiet city, so I would recommend you to spend most of the time in Tasmania in the countryside.

“Step back in time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

If you still have the legs for it, hiking over and around Battery Point is a very pleasant way to get a sense of old Hobart town. Rising above Salamanca there are several access points from convict steps to steep access roads. Our favourite is to walk around the foreshore and park then up into Battery Point streets from there. Don't leave it too long, as we see the area changing with the slow creep of progress changing the streetscape.

A delightful place to spend the day, great restaurants and delightful walks, as you wander it's like stepping back in time.

“History and architecture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Wear comfortable walking shoes, and take lots of photos. There are a number of cafes to stop in along the way

“Ghost Town Literally!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Not much too do, very bored being from Melbourne. Go on the Ghost tour, nothing else to do, the buildings were more interesting than the fake stories told!
