Directions to Shot Tower

The Shot Tower at Taroona was built in 1870 and stands 58 metres tall. It was built to produce lead shot. The Shot Tower is the only remaining circular sandstone shot tower in the world.

The shot tower is 11kms from Hobart and is one of Tasmania's most historical industrial buildings.

Lead shot was made by dropping molten lead through a sieve at the top of the tower and by the time it hit the water at the bottom it was cold and spherical in shape.

You can climb the 318 steps to the top and be rewarded with great views. It was Australia's tallest building for four years and Tasmania's tallest structure for over 100 years.

The onsite cafe offers morning and afternoon teas.

Admission Fee applies.

Opening Hours: 9am daily
