This walk let's you see many beautiful houses in the district and learn of the area's history. I enjoyed the experience. Well worth the effort.

Just a few minutes walk from the harbor, go back in time. Visit the shops, have lunch and enjoy the quaint village.

I love this area. Ambled around smelling roses in the gardens, looking at the architecture, taking in the views, looking at the sculptures, open areas, sitting places. Great area. Well maintained. Puts a smile on your face just walking around.

Walked the trail on a hot day in Hobart. It was a lot of fun and interesting. Took about 1 hour and we came back through the Battery Point village which was a wonderful cafe area. Worth doing.

It is worth the walk. We walked about 5 km from north Hobart area. Then walk to the pier for lovely views and delicious seafood. Beautiful day and it was sunny!

The point of the trail is to look out for the large and not so large numbers. Each number signifies an interesting historical event or quirk. An example being 1909 (the year Tasmanian export Errol Flynn was born). The incidental highlight of the trail is...More

Following the trail provides a good walk and also highlights some of the history of the area as you follow the sculptures. Not a very demanding walk.
