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.
