No bookings required, just turn up!

Concept and Design: Futago, in collaboration with Judith Abell and Chris Viney (2010).

No part of Hobart is more significant than Battery Point. The Battery Point Sculpture Trail is a collaborative project between Futago, Judith Abell and Chris Viney. It comprises oversized numbers to unlock Battery Point’s history and tells evocative tales of days gone by.

To discover more of Battery Point’s history, follow the sculpture trail that winds from Salamanca Place to Marieville Esplanade. As you explore, you’ll discover that this waterfront area has a layered history, steeped in stories. The full trail takes about an hour – look for the signs along the way.
