Hobart Accommodation

Hobart Shopping

The trendiest place to shop in Hobart is at Salamanca Place, down near the waterfront. While the beautiful old sandstone buildings have been converted to galleries, cafés and boutiques, the whole street comes alive on Saturdays (8.30am–3.00pm) with the outdoor market. Around 200 stalls sell exquisite Tasmanian-designed handmade goods and locally-grown fresh produce. It's bliss for people who like their shopping fresh, original and made or grown by the person who sells it to you.

Shopping hours are generally 9.30am to 6.00pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday, with the shops staying open until 9.00pm on Thursday and/or Friday. Sunday trading is becoming more widespread.

Hobart itself has several arcades and interesting shops of all descriptions throughout the city and suburbs. Some of the main centres are:

  • Salamanca Place and Salamanca Square

  • Cat and Fiddle Arcade, between Collins and Liverpool Streets

  • Sandy Bay, for designer clothing

  • Elizabeth Street Mall

  • Centrepoint Shopping Centre, Murray Street

  • Trafalgar Shopping Centre, Collins Street

  • Eastlands Shopping Centre, Bligh Street, Rosny Park

  • Glenorchy Central Shopping Centre, Eady Street, Glenorchy
