Battery Point

Hobart’s oldest neighborhood got its name from a battery of guns set up on the promontory in 1818 to defend the town against potential invaders. And the little village has barely changed since. Amble along the sweet winding streets and you’ll pass some of Hobart’s prettiest cottages, along with grand mansions, tearooms, antique stores, charming restaurants and atmospheric pubs. To get here, walk up Kelly’s Steps from Salamanca Place.
