It’s your last day in Hobart and time to explore the artful nooks and crannies of Salamanca. If it’s Saturday, the Salamanca Markets is the place to be when arty locals share their wares - jewellery, handcrafted timbers and clothing, as well as vintage collectables, pottery, plants and flowers.
The nearby Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery is Australia’s second oldest museum collecting and preserving the art, plants and artefacts that makes Tasmania so special. The exhibition program is regularly updated, and be sure to check out the Thylacine Gallery and Antarctic exhibition.
Tasmania has a rich maritime history from convict ships and whaling to Antarctic voyages and yachting culture. Explore the collection at the Maritime Museum before celebrating the end of your cultural week in Tasmania with a drink at the Brunswick Hotel, the second oldest in Australia.
If you are lucky enough to have some spare time, Port Arthur is a must-do for history buffs. Just an hour and a half drive from Hobart and one of Australia’s most important heritage sites, Port Arthur houses some incredible stories and epic history.
