Dowsing Point is a locality of the greater area of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. It is part of the City of Glenorchy and encompasses the area of land North-East of Goodwood protruding into the Derwent River. It includes the land feature Dowsings Point which marks the north of the entrance to Prince of Wales Bay.
Dowsing Point is best known as the Western land-end of the Bowen Bridge (Goodwood Road), an arterial road linking the Brooker Highway with the East Derwent Highway.
While the Glenorchy City Council classes it as a suburb, there are only a small number of residences within the area located between the Commonwealth land situating the Derwent Barracks, and the Elwick Racecourse.
Dowsing Point is the site of the Tasmanian Technopark, a Qantas call center, an army barracks and various Park Lands. In 2007, Mayor Adriana Taylor proposed to have Dowsing Point as the new site of the Royal Hobart Hospital.
