The Battery Point District of Hobart City is an area that retains its original features. The bars and old houses here are mainly red and white, and the old streets are quiet and comfortable. The streets of historic buildings are interesting. Walking in the Salamanca Square and market at the southern end of the harbor also makes people feel relaxed and relaxed. It only opens every Saturday morning. It's a good place to find out local companion gifts. Recommendation!
Hobart is the second oldest city in Australia and a city full of historical precipitation. Salamanca Square is not only the product of colonial era but also the gateway of Hobart. Because it is close to the Salamanca wharf, the sandstone warehouse built in the whaling era and the square built along the coast of the port, it is now the best place for people to relax and entertain. These sandstone buildings are now used as galleries, clothing stores, art and crafts stores, local specialty stores, antique shops and bars and restaurants. The busiest part of the square is the Salamanca Fair on Saturdays. There will be hundreds of stalls. Each stall sells its own fruits, bread, cheese, candies, cakes, vegetables and other foods. It also has its own superfluous or unused articles and crafts, as well as hand-made soaps, cosmetics, fragrances and other products made of natural materials, which are popular with local people and tourists. If you go to Hobart, you'd better arrange a market tour on Saturdays. You'll be surprised. It's a pity that I didn't know this when I made the plan, and I just missed it. You must make up for it when you have a chance in the future.
Walking around the Salamanca Square and the market at the southern end of the harbor also makes people feel relaxed and relaxed. These days, the Hobart sailing race has made the harbor quite lively. Thank you for your company along the way. As soon as I came to Hobart, I was not happy. I was a man who didn't like to see the high-rise buildings in the city. But in Hobart, every street in this ancient city is full of artistic flavor. There is no style of big city but quiet and peaceful. This city has given me too many surprises.
Salamanca Square is near the port, with many bars and craft shops. Every Saturday there is a market in Salamanca, where locals can be seen selling a variety of handicraft products. We just didn't meet the market opening day, or maybe it's off-season. There aren't many people in the square.
The Salamanc Fair, the most famous market in the southern hemisphere, has attracted a large number of tourists and locals every Saturday morning since 1972. It is said to be one of the four most famous markets in the world. It is mentioned in almost all the travel notes. Salamanca is adjacent to Hobart Harbour, named after Salamanca Province in Spain. It was against this market that we arrived in Hobart on Saturday to see what Salamanca Market, the largest market in the southern hemisphere, looked like when it opened over 300 stalls. The market sells fruits and vegetables, handicrafts, and many Home Made products. From here, we can feel the simple life style of Tajikistan people. In addition, there are various delicacies and street performances.
Since last weekend, we must not miss Hobart's most dynamic weekend open-air market, the largest open-air market in the southern hemisphere, with 300 stalls and 200 years of history. Unlike the market I imagined, it was more like a carnival, with ice cream dining cars, art shops, galleries, original jewelry stores, gardening shops, second-hand stalls, seafood stalls. When we arrived, we saw Chinese immigrants performing Chinese acrobatics. Traffic - "1. Walk south along Hobart Wharf for 10 minutes to reach Salamanca Fair 2. Free shuttle bus Hobart Hopper flies between Salamanca Fair and various locations in the city every 10 minutes. Business hours - "8:00-15:00 a week on Saturdays (change to Sunday if public holidays occur on Saturdays)
Living a local life in a strange city is the greatest pleasure of free travel. If I am lucky enough, I can also meet a rare local event. The self-driving trip to Tasmania in Australia in 2012 made me fortunate to meet a lively flea market. This localized and lively "free market" is the most direct and in-depth way for you to feel and understand the local life and culture. Every Saturday at the Salamanca Market in Hobart, I feel deeply about Hobart's civilian life. Salamanca Market is located on the side of Salamanca Place, along the Georgian sandstone warehouse in the 1830s. Early in the morning, hard-working Hobart residents came to set up stalls here. Unlike the large-scale arts and crafts markets in most tourist cities, the participants in the Salamanca market are mainly local residents. Besides the well-known local crafts, a large part of the products sold are necessities of their daily life, such as flowers, soap, clothing, books and even fresh-picked fruits and vegetables. Therefore, in addition to the travelers who are lucky to catch up with the Salamanca market, more local people come to purchase and exchange goods for daily life. When we meet, we greet each other like old friends and even come to a happy bargaining.
