Battery Point

Battery Point, Hobart

Battery Point is immediately south of Hobart’s city centre and is named after the battery of guns that once formed Hobart’s coastal defences.

The guns were used for ceremonial purposes but never to defend against attackers and were ultimately de-commissioned in 1878.

Battery Point is now premium real estate. The small cottages have been converted into gorgeous homes.

It’s a lovely place to walk around and explore.
