Description

Soak up the elegance, beauty and history of this quiet and exclusive area that was once farmland known as Cottage Green. This tour includes Arthurs Circus and is full of stories including dubious property dealings by Governor Arthur, the fall of the carousing Reverend Knopwood and the ship building tycoon Alexander MacGregor whose finest of grand Georgian homes still stands today. Battery Point is best appreciated at a leisurely pace on foot with a guide who can bring to life how wealth flowed into Battery Point from the influx of trade and the British Royal Navy shipping timber, wool and rum from the Salamanca docks and warehouses. This easy walking tour starts at Parliament House and ends in Salamanca Square. Don't forget to ask your guide for recommendations for places you can go after the tour to buy souvenirs, food and beverages.

Important Information

  • Hobart is well known for its glorious range of weather conditions, often on the same day, so please check the weather forecast and dress accordingly
  • For hot sunny days: hats, sunglasses, sunscreen and a water bottle are recommended
  • Rain is not usually an issue as Hobart is the second driest city in Australia. When it does rain, it’s often in short showers which can be managed with undercover stops. A rain jacket or umbrella is a good option just in case.
  • Particularly with the afternoon tours, the temperature can drop toward evening so a jumper or jacket is recommended even if it’s quite warm to begin with. Generally a nice southerly breeze springs up to surprise the unwary, so a light windproof is useful
  • Comfortable walking shoes are essential
  • Tours will go ahead regardless of the weather
