Tasmania’s charming waterfront capital, Hobart, is close to many nearby attractions but also ‘harbors’ a few treasures of its own.
Make Salamanca Place the first stop on your Hobart itinerary. The honey-colored historic warehouses here date back to the whaling days of the 1830s but today preside over an altogether different scene. Salamanca Place is now the city’s cultural and artistic hub and it’s the place to find unique arts and crafts made by local artisans. Wander the galleries and enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants. If you’re there on a Saturday you’ll be able to browse for bargains at the lively Salamanca market.
