The Greater Hobart Trails website suggests loads of interesting walking options. We had planned to complete the entire Classic Urban Parks walk in one stint. But as usual, we stopped so many times to take photos of sculptures and scenery we had to abandon Plan A. Yep, we’ll get back to the second half of the walk another day.
Walking via Salamanca means stopping for coffee… and possibly cakes! Taking Coco with us limits the options because we need a dog-friendly place with outdoor tables. But that’s no biggie, there’s always somewhere suitable. And if not, we can choose the takeaway option and enjoy some of the “classic urban parks” picnic-style.
Walking Hobart: Salamanca Place, Battery Point
Besides the architectural highlights – including the sandstone warehouses of Salamanca Place and Parliament House – walkers are privy to fountains, statues and memorial walls. All fascinating stuff for the history buff.
As a bonus, Hobart city gardens are stunning in any season. Take your camera. And if you don’t have a husky/kelpie cross to drag you up the hills, you can stop to catch your breath while pretending to focus on the vista!
