Getting There

Walk, ride your bike, take a bus, or drive your car to Salamanca Place to begin the trail.

The Battery Point Sculpture Trail is an easy stroll linking nine large numerical sculptures that provide a fascinating introduction to Hobart’s history. Each sculpture along this international-award winning trail represents a weight, measure, time, quantity, date or distance linked to a story about that place. Look for a sculpture afloat in the river, one cut from a hedge and another that glows all night. The trail winds past some of the city’s oldest surviving residences and through locations where many of Tasmania’s first industries were established. Following around Battery Point and along the shore of the river, there are views of both the port and the lower Derwent Estuary.
