Bellerive, famous for the international cricket ground Bellerive Oval, is also a popular sailing area and home to Bellerive Yacht Club. It stretches from Rosny park along Kangaroo Bay past Bellerive Beach to Howrah. Originally known as Kangaroo Point due to the large number of kangaroos in the area it was renamed to Bellerive, which means beautiful river bank in the 1830's.
The beautiful Bellerive Quay and boardwalk offer visitors a village experience. Settled in the 1820s many historical homes and buildings can still be seen in Bellerive. One of the oldest buildings is the original Police Station built in 1842 from local sandstone. Other historical buildings include the Clarence Hotel (1879) the old Bellerive Post Office (1897), Natone House (1863) built for for Hobart judge Sir Valentine Fleming and Kangaroo Battery (1885) a 19th century British fortress, now a public park.
