The most famous thing in Hobart, dare I submit, is the Salamanca Markets. This not-to-be-missed event happens every Saturday and draws a crowd, rain, hail or shine; though it's fair to suggest that on a freezing winter morn there may be a few less than in spring!
Food and art are two of the things that you'll see lots of here and, with a backdrop of the harbour on one side and the lovely old restored warehouses on the other, it's a wonderful venue.
