Hampden Road begins at a cluster of antique shops near Sandy Bay Road and heads downhill to Castray Esplanade, which winds through the heart of Battery Point.
One of the earliest grand houses in Battery Point is Narryna Heritage Museum, built in 1836 by one of Hobart’s early sea captains and now set up as a heritage museum. Visitors can wander through the house and see how a comfortable life would have been lived in early Hobart. The kitchen is especially worth a look. 103 Hampden Rd; (03) 6234 2791; open 10.30am–5pm Mon–Fri, 12.30–5pm Sat–Sun in summer, 10.30am–5pm Tues–Fri, 2–5pm Sat–Sun in winter.comments powered by Disqus
