A quick visit to Hobart must allow time for a visit to Battery Point where you will find quaint stone cottages and some wonderfully restored buildings, character-filled restaurants and even a hotel that has a modern look but manages not to destroy the ambience and relaxed feel of the area.

One of those great little hideaways, probably known better by the locals, is a little cafe in Hamden Road styled the Jackman & Ross. If this isn't the very best coffee around I don't know what is.

Battery Point, once the 'red light district' of Hobart Town is now the most expensive suburb to purchase a home. The houses are quaint and give a sense of 'yesteryear'. My advice is to take one of the walking tours or Ghost Tour as there is so much history and so many stories to be told about this small area... More

OK so the streets are narrow and hard to get around I the traffic but who cares. Take a wrong turn and get lost for an hour or so. The old houses deserve you to visit alone. I could have spent a whole day here just going around in circles to see another house. Loved it

Our first evening in Hobart - Battery Point, located in the middle and at the bottom of the most beautiful houses in Hobart. It was delight to drive upto Battery Point and take in the beauty of the water and view from there. Very peaceful and beautiful. We went back there on our last evening as well. Loved it.

I reccomend taking this walk home, make sure you walk up the Kelly's steps. Then you will walk through an amazing little area. It reminded us of Notting Hill in London. Its a half hour walk back to the casino.

The beautiful ambience of these charming cottages and stately buildings is somewhat tarnished by the growth of Hobart around, and into, the area but there are some beautiful gems to be found. Arthur's Circus is a fabulous slice of yesteryear.

Battery Point is within walking distance of Salamanca and Hampden Road where you have access to a variety of great restaurants. The houses are a sight and it is just a lovely part of Hobart.
