Interactive Map of Battery Point Tasmania | The Historic Precinct of Hobart
Use my map of Battery Point to explore Hobart’s Historic Precinct.
Battery Point was settled in the early 1800’s, and has retained the winding streets, colonial architecture and historical ambiance that make it one of the most fascinating historic precincts in Australia.
Built on a point of land jutting into the Derwent River, it has become one of the most fashionable suburbs of Hobart, all the while keeping its historical links with Tasmania’s past.

Hampden Road | Map of Battery Point
The main street running from Sandy Bay Road to the end of Battery Point is Hampden Road. Some great restaurants are in Hampden Road, perhaps the best Italian Restaurant in Australia is to be found at Da Angelo. This is Italian food from someone who really knows what he is doing.
Battery Square | Map of Battery Point
Battery Square was where the gun emplacement from which Battery Point got its name was housed. It is a great place to watch the finish of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. Take a picnic and enjoy the view. > Hotels in Battery Point
Arthur Circus | Map of Battery Point
Tucked away in between Hampden Road and Runnymede Street, Arthur Circus Park is a circle of early Battery Point history. Walk through for a real feel of the scale and dimensions of the cottages in old Hobart Town from the early 1800’s.
There are some really interesting accommodations built into the original buildings of Battery Point. I suggest you look into Hampden at Battery Point Apartments or Lenna of Hobart if you want to stay in the heart of the Historic Precinct. > Hotels in Battery Point
There are a number of historic pubs in the Battery Point area, but I would suggest a visit to the Shipwrights Arms if you really want to see a yachties watering hole in action. It’s on the corner of Trumpeter and Colville Streets. “Shippies,” as it is affectionately known by the locals, has a good bistro menu and accommodation if you want to stay upstairs from the bar.
Narryna Heritage History Museum | Map of Battery Point
About 100 metres from the Sandy Bay Road and Hampden Road corner, the Narryna Heritage Museum is housed in the old colonial building from which it got its name. If you are into heritage and history, Narryna is well worth a visit.
