Yes it might be a trendy place but print yourself off the self guided walking tour map and explore this old interesting area. food and coffee along the way. Some hills involved but take your time and enjoy the history. took us past the barracks which we didnt even know were there. All up allow about two hours if you stop to look at the buildings and for coffee. More time if you visit the two museums. One is at the barracks.

A very nice area to stroll along. Historical building abound.
Quirky lane ways. Fantastic views to Sandy Bay and beyond

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.

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.
