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.

    This is a must do just for the experience. I am not really a market person and found most of the products really expensive but it is popular and good to tick off your must do list. I love Hobart so it is nice to experience all it has to offer

    Fantastic markets, great fresh produce, butcher and bakery also perfect. Best to get there early, pay for parking even on a Sunday..

    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.

    If you're in Hobart when the markets are on they are well worth a visit. We explored the variety of craft, food and drink stalls before find a table and chairs and sitting back enjoying a glass or two of Hurly Burly pinot noir which was very good, listening to the entertainment and enjoying the best spring rolls from Filipino Street food.

    There is so much to love about The Rare And Beautiful … I was lucky enough to buy jewellery from their Coastal Collection + the huge array of bead necklaces. Prices are very reasonable and the quality is amazing. The Salamanca stall in Hobart is such a great way to see all the incredible and stunning pieces.

    Well positioned shop that offers a wide range of locally made and sourced goods for sale. We were particularly impressed with the beautiful range of paintings and photographs of birds and wilderness and nature settings.

    There was also a wide range of other goods for sale with similar themes including jewellery, stationery, books, guides, homewares, soaps, some clothing items and other produce such as teas and olive oils etc.

    Prices though, appeared to be geared to the tourist market.

    One of our drivers on the Red Decker recommended that the arcade was worth a visit to see the Cat and Fiddle Clock. I was enjoying my coffee at Muffin Break when the cat played the fiddle and the cow jumped over the moon. Right on the hour - " hey, diddle, diddle the cat plays his fiddle, the cow jumps over the moon, the little dog laughs". There are various tenancies and a Myer store.

    The only place in Hobart to get the best contemporary art. We love coming here every other year and buying a new piece. No where else in Hobart like it.

    Beautiful gallery, incredible range of Tasmanian made products to buy. Art objects, homewares, garden sculptures, jewellery, lighting & stunning Tasmanian timbers. Lovely, friendly staff. Prices from $5 to $5000. Best retail gallery in Tasmanian for sure!

    This is a great little store jam packed with great buys. I always walk away with something from here when visiting Hobart. The book selection is amazing.

    Main stream shops you would expect to see in any US or Sydney mall. Not really worth the walk around.

    It is difficult parking near the Antiques Warehouse in Warick St., due to the Hobart City Council's stupidity. It is worth the difficulty in finding the entrance about 40 metres up from Elizabeth St. As you walk in the entrance, mentally say "Open Sazamey" ? like Alladin going into his treasure cave. There is whole floors of depending on your personal taste, both trash and Treasure. I found 2 small sterling sliver salt and mustard spoons from a long gone Hobart Silversmith. If you ask Scott what you are looking for, he may take you there, or send you on your own to find it? You may need a compass to find your way back. Trash or Treasure It is all in the eye of the beholder!

    This is a groovy Knick knack shop. Some great lamps and even boots that unfortunately didn’t fit my partner.

    Worth a look in when walking Macquarie st.
