Battery Point

National Trust homes and Old Town feel

As Hobart’s most historic suburb, Battery Point is best discovered on foot. This way, you can take a good peek at old sailor cottages, pop in for a croissant at the bakery, and literally stop and smell the historic rose varieties lining Kelly Street.

The best way to begin your discovery is via Kelly’s Steps, from Salamanca Place down by the waterfront. These 1830s-built steps are a fitting way to enter a neighbourhood that retains its Cornish fishing village feel. During its early days Battery Point was home to the mariners of Hobart Town.

Today, the exclusive residential suburb is sprinkled with National Trust homes and sandstone facades that whisper of those earlier sailors. Take a wander to Arthur’s Circus, the village green for which the suburb is built around. Near two centuries on, there are plenty of Battery Point stops to enjoy. There’s a famed bakery, traditional pubs and cafes bustling with locals chatting over morning coffee.

Princes Park is a pretty place to lay out a blanket, and the colonial museum Narranya will transport you back to life in the 19th century. From afar, St George’s Anglican Church in Cromwell Street is a well-lit icon of Battery Point and can easily be seen from surrounding areas when you need a landmark to get your bearings.

Down at Marieville Esplanade you can take a waterfront kayaking trip or just sit on the park bench and watch neighbourhood dogs play beside the River Derwent.

Highlights not to miss

  • Grab a counter meal or have a beer with the locals at the Shipwrights Arms
  • Walk by the Mariners cottages
  • Stop in at Jackman & McRoss bakery
  • See the battery beneath Princes Park
  • Enjoy the park beside St George’s Anglican Church
  • Hop on the swings at Arthurs Circus
  • Explore the Battery Point Sculpture Trail
  • Dine along Hampden Road
