Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went on a Friday to the shops which must carry 80% Tasmanian goods to be located here. It was nice to see the crafts, locally made goods and different artisans. We look forward to seeing the Salamanca market which is only on Saturdays.

Great to see the artists in some instances. Some very good pieces/shops/galleries.
But go on a Saturday and do the Salamanca market too, and as a combo a great experience. My time suggestion is enough for both. Added on time for snack lunch too.

The Antarctica exhibition on the first level was definitely worth visiting. All the shops on the ground level were worth visiting as well.

It’s a must see spot on your trip to Hobart on a Friday night. The band is amazing and the whole centre has a fantastic vibe. Loved it!

A must visit place while in Hobart. Here you will find variety of Aussie made products from music to arts, drink and food etc. I especially enjoyed the wood carving and the history section of the marketplace where one can learn about the history of Tasmania in a lively fashion.

The Salamanca Arts Centre is the front to the Salamanca Markets, but if you venture down the alleys, you will find an interesting courtyard behind, with details about the history. Worth exploring
