The historic precinct in Hobart
Battery Point is a lovely town where you can find charming historic houses, pubs, restaurants and boutique shops. You can access the area through Sandy Bay Road and Hampden Road in Hobart.
Being one of Hobart's oldest and most historic areas, the beautiful and tranquil Battery Point is enough to lure you into trying to find out more about this place.
Battery Point Sculpture Trail
The Battery Point Sculpture Trail provides you with an introduction about the history of Hobart through installations of public artwork. The project's concept "sculpture by numbers" is indeed interesting - it represents a measure of weight, time, date or distance linked to a story about that place. This certainly gets you a good feel about Battery Point. You can download the copy of the Battery Point Sculpture Trail brochure to find out more information.

Continuing with your exploration, you can find Princes Park, which is located in the heart of historic Battery Point and was once the site of the gun battery. When I went there, it happened that it was a sunny day - long shadows were cast across the grassy area. Taking a leisurely stroll made I feel relaxed.
