  • Had a great time wandering around here on a cool, wet Hobart day. Beautiful old houses, informative printed guide. Loved it despite the rain.  more »
  • It has to be mentioned that, in addition to The Rock, Cape Bartley is also the point of wedding photos. This place has a combination of food, food and living, like Hong Kong's Kangyu. People's homes are beautifully decorated, like being in the moldy public. In addition, there is a famous old shop, my friends and I do not eat well.

  • Half scavenger hunt, half history lesson this trail is a great romp through a delightful historical neighborhood. The biggest delight is looking at the many periods homes and gardens while the various signposts explain the history of this section of Hobart.
