Here's another interesting place to have a look at. Ever wonder how they make lead shot? No? That's all right, I hadn't either but, when I did find out, it was quite interesting.
The reason for the height or this tall tower is that it that when the molten lead is poured from the top it takes this far before it forms into little droplets of lead - hey presto, there's your shot.
There's also a souvenir shop, some nice outdoor tables where you can snack and a panoramic view from the top.
Directions: Southern suburbs of Hobart
