We wandered around the Slamanca Arts Centre and adjacent galleries several times over several days and saw something new that we liked each time. Bought several things from several little shops and ate at several cafes, all good and reasonable priced. A lovely part of Hobart.

We were travelling light, so I limited myself to a few small things, but would have loved to buy more.

The Salamanca Arts centre is a great venue to see the work of local artists. The staff are friendly and the range of wonderful art works mind boggling. The woods of Tasmania are just beautiful and feature in many magnificent works

Had some lovely glass work and some unusual furniture but at a price I could not consider. So if you are fortunate to be able to spend over $200 for a special vase or art object it is well worth a look. I went there at the end of the day so was weary of looking and very selective at... More

Enjoyed visiting each of the areas in the centre. There was a range of excellent quality items at a range of prices. Something for everyone. Particularly liked that items were Tasmanian made.

Visiting the Arts centre is a great way to extend your visit to the market. The very talented have much to show off at the Arts centre and it's easy to lose yourself here.

Stairs and corridors leading to galleries and workspaces, but it was mostly closed and unattended on Saturday whilst the market was in full swing.
