We were disappointed in the Salamanca Market on the Saturday, so we visited the arts centre during the week and found great Tasmanian crafts to buy. Very helpful, with packing our purchases so they wouldn’t get broken on the journey home

Salamanca Arts Centre oozes in Australian History. Formally old warehouses , later created into the cultural hub of Tasmania. There are numerous Art Galleries, craft shops, exhibitions, music and theatre performances.
