The area south of Hobart is the more interesting and historic area that includes Salamanca and Battery Point and further out to Cascades Brewery. There are some interesting old houses and historic sights.

But I'm biased because I live here. The only thing South Hobart lacks is a decent bookstore. Cafes, thrift stores, fine grocers, fish and chips, restaurants, pharmacy, architects, butchers, the South Hobart Living Arts Collective, yoga classes, playgrounds, petrol station, brewery... what more could you...More

I got off at South Hobart Village when riding the Red Decker "Hop On Hop Off" Bus yesterday. A nice setting - peaceful even on a weekday. Spent about an hour walking around before reboarding another Red Decker.
