Event Information

Destination: Hobart, Tasmania

Salamanca MarketsHobart is the second oldest capital city in Australia, located in Australia's furthest southern state of Tasmania. The 2006 census declares the population of Hobart as 217,525; these townspeople of Hobart are known as Hobartians. Tasmania differs to the rest of Australia through the geographical layout of the state with the island of Tasmania having over 1,000 mountain peaks and over 40% of the island is national park territory. The increase of multiculturalism in Hobart has lead to an expansion of the town, offering a newer, more modern living environment in the newer suburbs of Hobart.

Head down to Salamanca Place where you will find 19th-century waterfront warehouses dating back to the 1830s whaling days. Today, they house cafés, restaurants, galleries and art studios, the ideal place to wander or enjoy alfresco dining. Hobart is a city of warm sandstone, bright spinnakers on the water, fish punts at the docks and coffee under the sun umbrellas of Salamanca where the famous Salamanca Market is held every Saturday. You can take in art, craft, music and theatre at Salamanca Arts Centre and the surrounding warehouses. Learn about the Island and the city's history and contemporary life at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery on Macquarie Street. The already world famous MONA has redefined both art and 'museuming', and is just 15 mins from the city centre. Drive in, or cruise upriver for a unique experience. All reasons for why the Lonely Planet has recently ranked Hobart as the 7th best city, in the world, to see in 2013.
