What to do in Hobart

Considered the cultural hub of Hobart, Salamanca’s grand old sandstone warehouses on Hobart’s famous waterfront are now home to world class art, convict history, pristine nature and award-winning whiskies. Wander through colonial architecture taking in the vibrant energy of the creatives who live here, or discover artisanal produce, daring modern art, hip bars and restaurants.

On Saturdays, the main cobblestone thoroughfare comes alive with the sights, sounds and scents of the internationally renowned Salamanca Markets, one of the Top 10 Things to do in Hobart, celebrating Tasmania’s unique heritage, artists and local producers. Over Summer, Salamanca and the waterfront are alive with the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, Wooden Boat Festival, and the Taste of Tasmania. While in winter, locals and tourists soak up the atmosphere of Dark MOFO, with bonfires, fairy lights, and mulled wine. Just a short walk to Hobart’s city center and oozing with modern and historic charm, the eclectic magic of Salamanca Place is the best place in Tasmania to catch up with friends and take in the Tassie lifestyle.
