the 8th July 2014. Enjoy your day and I hope you pick up something
of the unique character of my home town Hobart Tasmania. A
special welcome today to couchsurfers. As the days lengthen
slightly and we head toward what I think will be an early Spring
lets remember those who are not free to travel, for whatever reason. Lets be thankful for all
the good things we have and live life to the full :-)
On Saturdays, Salamanca Place comes alive with the famous Salamanca Market
operated by the Hobart City Council. Over 300 stallholders sell
fresh and gourmet produce, arts, crafts and handiwork crafts from all over Tasmania,
interstate and overseas.
Ranging as one of the top attractions in Tasmania, The Salamanca Market is another good reason to
make your stay in Hobart last for more than just a few days.
Salamanca Place is one of Tasmania's
best known landmarks
along with Cradle Mountain, Mount Wellington,
Arthur, Freycinet, Strahan and MONA; The Museum of Old and New
Art at Berriedale.
With dozens of restaurants and shops,
Salamanca Square, nightlife, pubs, artists, galleries
craft shops to suit every budget plus the famous Salamanca Market
(pictured, left)is one of the newer restaurants in
Salamanca Square, just off Salamanca Place in Hobart.
Salamanca Place and the famous Salamanca Market are
among the main attractions in Hobart. 92% of visitors to
Tasmania spend a couple of nights in Hobart and a visit
to the market is a priority. Other attractions include
Derwent River cruise or a visit to nearby Mount
Wellington. Increasing numbers of interstate visits
coincide with the annual Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race,
Taste of Tasmania, MONA FOMA, and the 2015
Australian Wooden Boat Festival.
