Battery Point Community Association

The Battery Point Community Association encourages community activities and initiatives, provides community facilities and works to enhance the aesthetic, heritage and cultural values of the area.

The Association has developed a web-based self-directed walk (‘In Bobby’s Footsteps’) around the land that was originally granted to the Reverend Robert (Bobby) Knopwood in 1804. The walk takes you on a journey behind the scenes to discover how people lived in the past and how things have changed over time.

The resource has been developed with support from the Tasmanian Community Fund and has involved local school children to expose them to the history of the local area and to help bridge the generational gap as the young people assist with the collection of the stories from the older members of the community.
