If you love to explore antiques and make amazing discoveries, then you are going to love this Tasmanian festival.
The Hobart Collectors Antique Fair takes place from December 18 to January 1, showcasing a range of antiques and collectables from more than 30 local and mainland dealers.
The event comes in the holiday season, a great time of the year to visit Tasmania, with the Sydney to Hobart race in full swing and the fantastic Taste food festival taking place.
The fair is in its 18th year and will be held at the City Hall on Macquarie Street, Hobart, where it is in close proximity to Hobart's waterfront to visit the Taste festival and view the exciting events of the Sydney to Hobart race.
Last year's fair saw a record number of people attend, with organisers assuring that the 2012 fair will have 'items to please the antique connoisseur and the casual collector alike'.
Entry for adults is $7 with children under 16 admitted free to the fair – this event is one that antique lovers definitely can't miss!
