What you need to know

Tasmania in general has a charming, old-world feel to most of the state outside of the more urban parts of Hobart and other larger cities, and this is exemplified in full by Hobart’s suburb of Battery Point. Located to the South-East of the city towards the waterfront, visiting Battery Point is akin to stepping back in time – it’s a truly historic area with many buildings which remain intact since their founding back in 1830. Dotted throughout with colonial-style and stone buildings and various charming little coffee shops and restaurants, it’s easy to immerse yourself in yesteryear and is best explored simply by taking a stroll through its streets.

Fine examples of period-specific architecture abound here – possessing a strong hint of obvious 1800s British influences – and walking guides are available from the local Post Office which highlight points of interest that are worth taking in for first-timers. And highlights there are aplenty – those with a passion for architecture will be in their element here, as examples of most kinds of building from the era can be seen remarkably intact. Key spots include St. George’s Anglican Church with its iconic stone facade, Arthur Circus and its array of quaint cottages (many of which once served as homes for army officers upon Hobart’s initial settlement), and various other high-end houses and hotels that are still in use today – and fetch a jaw-dropping price on the market due to the prestige residency in the suburb carries.

NOTE

  • Buildings range from fishing cottages up to mansions
  • Name derived from a former gun battery that was stationed here
