A great intro to the area

Not to be missed, if you love art and history of the local area, make sure you visit this centre. About two hours would be a nice start

Be prepared to check out some "different" pieces of work. But it does the soul good to open your eyes. Definitely worth a visit to add to your vitae.

A good place to visit as you stroll around Salamanca. A broad range of interesting galleries as well as a knitters cooperative and a good café. It showcases some excellent art and crafts. There is also a theatre and a gallery so there is often something 'extra' but there is always something to see and do.

If you don't have time to visit Bruny Island, you an still taste Bruny Island Cheese Company's outstanding artisanal cheeses at the shop in the center. The Raw Milk C2 was amazing. We also enjoyed the Resource Work Cooperative's annual recycled art show on the second floor. The Coop operates a series of interesting programs transforming trash to art such... More

We always drop in here when we visit Hobart and have picked up a few pieces over the years. Beautiful handcrafted goods both big and small.

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.

Lots of shops & cooperatives run by practicing artists & crafts people. Mostly very high quality, not much tat. Not especially cheap, but a great place to buy gifts, or bespoke furniture, if that's your thing. We were travelling light, so I limited myself to a few small things, but would have loved to buy more.
