About Battery Point

Battery Point is famous for its beautifully preserved nineteenth century houses. This elegant suburb of Hobart gets its name from the battery of guns which were mounted on the headland in 1818.

Until the 1830s this area was rural and then building began on Stowell and Secheron House in Secheron Road and then the construction of the warehouses in Salamanca Place. Building continued with the addition of workers cottages and beautiful Georgian mansions. It was designed to copy the streets of England with the inclusion of village greens.

Battery Point's most famous building is St George's Church. Designed by James Blackburn the church was constructed from 1836 to 1838. The tower which makes this church so exceptional was added in 1847. St George's Church is considered Australia's best example of a Greek Revival Church. It has the most magnificent carvings and portico.
