Everything seems to happen here.
You find good restaurants and little boats on the water selling cooked and fresh seafood plus cruise ships seem to be coming and going every day.
If you are lucky you might see a ship from the Antartic expedition or even a boat from the Sydney to Hobart Yacht race.
This is where the transport leaves for MONA and most of the bus tours.
Just sit on a seat and take all the happenings in.it's a good place to people watch.
Every day for eleven days we came here and always something different happening.

Too many city marina/waterfronts are a bit fake these days. This is good though. Old buildings, old ships mix in with the modern and its a real working harbour.

Places to eat and drink dot the area and views to Mt Wellington are good.

Ramble amongst Tall Ships, modern ferries, Ocean Racers, trailer sailers juxtaposed against old architectural gems. The harbour glistens by day and becomes a night club destination by night; weekends only of course - it is Hobart. Launches head off the Bruny Islan, Peppermint Bay and the splendid MONA Art Gallery

This area is so much better than on my last visit in 1993. It is welcoming, there are lots of food etc places, and abuts the Salamanca market area which is also good.

We walked along here nearly every day of our visit.
