Although you may not buy much here, there is a nice selection of locally made artworks. The Bruny Island Cheese Co has some great cheese etc to taste as well.

You need to pick and choose your way through here. There are some ok galleries, some work impressive some not. Lots of overpriced "design" shops with wooden beads on ribbon, overpriced fimo jewellery and paper cut out posters etc that anyone could make, but there are some lovely pieces at the silver shop. Some shops Hard to access with wheelchairs... More

We went here to see the Art from Trash expo and it was fantastic, engaged all four kids, who could actually see what the artist was making from trash rather than some unknown art that ponders on life itself and is too mature for children. Great little gallery with more ehibitions for the Dark Mofo weekend.

Salamanca is a must see when you visit Hobart,every Saturday the market transforms the whole street into a mass of local produce, during the week the many shops and eateries provide a pleasant place to browse, although the shops tend to sell overpriced goods, this is probably because of the many tourists who disembark the cruise ships here. If there... More

Some nice quality good available in some nicely appointed stores. Look around before you buy The Art of Silver has a good collection. Some stores have staff who don't even acknowledge you when you walk in - we decided not to spend in these places as we consider this rude. Given the economic climate - a hello doesn't go astray...

Great place to spend an hour or so browsing local examples of art, photography and design. Very well organised and plenty of different types of art to see. Very reasonable prices and also a couple of great places for a snack or coffee.

Have a wander through the alleys here - pick up a souvenir of your stay, a bottle of Tassie wine and then have a beer in the square.
