A must visit place while in Hobart. Here you will find variety of Aussie made products from music to arts, drink and food etc. I especially enjoyed the wood carving and the history section of the marketplace where one can learn about the history of Tasmania in a lively fashion.

The Salamanca Arts Centre is the front to the Salamanca Markets, but if you venture down the alleys, you will find an interesting courtyard behind, with details about the history. Worth exploring

Salamanca market is the place to be on a Saturday. The crowds are incredible. Very difficult to manoeuvre your way through and difficult to see any stall in great detail. There are some shops around the Arts Centre area and these are best to be seen any day but market day.

Old Hobart buildings refurbished to house a number of galleries and shops. Many things to choose from at all price ranges. Very worthwhile stop when visiting Hobart. Close to the harbor.

It's an old building that gets very hot inside as it is not airconditioned. Also, drinks served were not cold as there was no refrigeration.....definitely needs an upgrade.

Spread over several buildings with a small theatre in the middle, the centre embodies the character of Hobart- laid back, informal and friendly. Everybody says hello and smiles- a great place to spend time.
