Hobart is Tasmania's harbour capital and the second oldest Australian Capital, located in the south east of the state and at the foot of majestic Mount Wellington. The city's 129,000 residents enjoy the river harbour, the mountain vistas and beautiful national parks throughout the state.
Hobart has many historic sandstone buildings which are still in use today. At Salamanca Place you will find 19th century waterfront warehouses dating back to the 1830's whaling days. Today, they are filled with cafes, restaurants, galleries and art studios, an ideal place to wander or enjoy alfresco dining. Each Saturday morning the famous Salamanca Market is held. The Market sells arts and crafts, antiques and fresh food and vegetables.
