A lovely mixture of everything. Art, food, wine, entertainment - you name it. It is whacky but then that's what makes it so fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend it if you like that sort of thing.

This is a must do in Hobart on a Saturday morning. Grab a coffee and stroll up one side and down the other. No need to wait at the busy cafes for breakfast first, you can grab great food walking through the market.

Recommend a visit here for everyone visiting Hobart. As well as exhibitions showcasing local artists there are many boutique shops and cafes in the area. Open seven days a week. Opportunity to purchase art work, pottery, jewellery clothing and furniture.

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.
