Liveable Hobart

Charlotte Peterswald suburb descriptions

Battery Point is set on the small hill behind Salamanca Place and bordered by Sandy Bay and the water. It is a small point that is very sought after and one of the oldest and most interesting suburbs in Australia. Large last century mansions mixed with delightful workers cottages.

A tourist attraction due to the historic nature of the houses, the antique shops, restaurants, bed and breakfasts and small general stores. A real village atmosphere and walking distance to the docks area and the city. Some of the most expensive waterfront homes are situated here along Clarke Avenue and Marine Terrace.
