If you are looking for a great combination of history, art and culture in the heart of Hobart, a Saturday at Salamanca Place is a great day out.
Many visitors hail a trip to Salamanca Market as the highlight of their Tasmanian holiday – and it’s not hard to see why.
On the weekend, Salamanca – one of the city’s most famous landmarks – is home to a bustling market, where you can visit more than 300 stalls offering arts, crafts and handiwork. Foodies will also enjoy the variety of fresh and gourmet produce from local vendors.
Set in a picturesque part of the city, the market is nestled among historic Georgian sandstone buildings and you’ll be able to watch the yachts and fishing boats moored in the scenic waterfront during a pause to enjoy a drink or delicious snack.
When you are finished at the market – which is open every Saturday without fail from 8:30 until 15:00 local time, regardless of the weather – you will also find plenty of fascinating attractions to explore nearby.
Salamanca Place is widely considered to be Tasmania’s cultural hub – it is just a short stroll from here to the beautiful St David’s Park and the historic cottages at Battery Point.
You will also find yourself within easy reach of some of the city’s best galleries and museums, as well as a wide selection of enticing restaurants, bars and cafes.
