Yes, there are old homes there, but was it worth the effort of walking up the hill from Salamanca? I don't think so. Nothing that you couldn't see in any city of a similar vintage such as Sydney. I preferred the buildings in the city proper such as the Hobart Savings Bank, T&G Insurance etc.

Battery Point is a well reserved inner city area with sandstone cottages, small streets and beautiful foreshore and parklands. Start the walk at Sandy Bay road and head down Hamden road taking in a side street or two to see the old cottages and houses. In the middle you will find a great coffee shop Jackman & McRoss for drinks... More

Interesting to wander around the streets looking at the buildings, including Arthurs Circle which has the oldest properties. Pity the church was closed for work on a new ramp.

If you like old buildings, you'll love Battery Point. It's like stepping back in time with beautiful old houses that tell something of the story of Hobart's past. Well worth a stroll around.

A short stroll through Battery Point shows one the beautiful, historical side of Hobart, akin to The Rocks in Sydney. Quaint houses and a lively strong of restaurants and eateries fill the place with energy and character. Perfect for your morning and evening stroll.

Plan to walk and wander. Its an easy stroll from the Salamanca precinct to see the very old houses and gardens that are the relics of early Hobart settlement. Most are still private homes but others are art galleries, coffee shops, restaurants and charming "keepsake' shops. Plan to spend 1-2 hours there at least (weather dependent of course).
