Salamanca Place - Discover Tasmania

Salamanca Place - Discover Tasmania

Salamanca Place, in Sullivans Cove, Hobart’s historic waterfront, is a long row of stylish Georgian sandstone warehouses built in the 1830s. The buildings now house boutiques, bars, bookshops, restaurants, outdoor cafes, art studios, craft galleries and jewellers. Each Saturday there’s the famous market, where you can buy anything from a handmade wooden toy to a handspun, hand-knitted sweater to a fresh peach to a 50-year-old china plate. Across the road there are green lawns and park benches shaded by plane trees that twinkle with lights in the evenings.

Behind Salamanca Place is Salamanca Square, where you can sit by the cooling fountain with a cup of coffee and a muffin and listen to a guitar or a flute player. This is a sunny, sheltered outdoor area perfect for relaxing in with children and friends.
