Salamanca Market

  In a nutshell:

On Hobart's waterfront, you'll find Salamanca Place, a quayside street lined with old sandstone warehouses now containing bars, cafes, restaurants, art galleries, craft shops and more. On Saturdays, all year round, Salamanca is filled with a colourful outdoor market featuring stalls laden with everything from local produce to fine crafts, clothing to antiques.

A tree lined park offers an inviting walk to the cruise ship terminal located opposite the market place.

A short walk away is Battery Point - a quaint historic suburb with narrow winding streets running down to shipyards and chandleries. Many buildings in the area have been preserved from first settlement in the early 1800's.

A guided walking tour is available with sufficient prior notice.
