Recharge Your Battery

Discover the many historical and cultural gems that await in Hobart's Battery Point neighborhood. Admire its Colónial-style buildings dating back to the 1830s. Check out St. George's — this sandstone church was designed in the 19th century by then-convict James Blackburn.

Quaint towns such as Katoomba stand in stark contrast to iconic landmarks such as the Three Sisters, the towering rock formation overlooking the valley.
