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.

WHEELIES COMMENTS -The Battery Point Sculpture Trail is partially accessible. It definitely will not suit all wheelchair users. Some of the paths are very old and broken pavers. This matched with very steep cut outs at the road crossings also. Half way through you will not be able to do the rest of the trail alone. It gets extremely steep after 1923, which 313 is the next one is not accessible in a chair regardless. I did not make it to this one, but was informed half way up Clark Ave by a couple who just had been there. It is extremely steep to get up to turn down Marine Terrace. I think you would be game to try the rest of it without assistance.
