Salamanca is a must. You cannot go to Hobart and not wander the area, taking in the sights, galleries and fantastic food. Even the buildings a stationary history of the wharf area are fantastic to look over. You have to check out every nook and cranny as the place is a maze of sights. Take a day just for this... More

They have an excellent selection of local artwork and crafts displayed. They are more expensive than you would find in other areas of Australia though.

The Salamanca square and the Arts centre are a nice place to visit and do the shopping. They dispose of plethora of souvenirs so go there and choose for yourself :)

There are lots to see at the Salamanca Art Center, which is located in historic old warehouses. Casual restaurants, bars, and fine dining are all located near here, as is the Saturday market. This review is to highlight a wonderful, fun weekly event that draws mostly the local community, with a few casual tourists. The setting is amazing, as this... More

This is a great little hub in Hobart to visit but be prepared to have plenty of cash if you wish to make a purchase. There is some wonderful art work available from blown glass bowls, plates etc. wooden items and some wonderful jewellery. Many of the items are locally made which is wonderful for local artists. Unfortunately, I feel... More
