Even without addiction-inducing halloumi fries (a must try!), this place would still be up there as one of the very best spots in the state for breakfast. The Asian-inspired fusion menu offers the more staple dishes - seasonal granola and impossibly fluffy omelettes, with equal parts surprising options including tofu and peanut butter bao.
To call Mona an art gallery is almost a disservice. Situated on an 8.5 acre picturesque peninsula just north of Hobart it includes accommodation, bars, a library, a brewery, a winery, lawns to picnic on and playgrounds to occupy the little ones. Oh, and of course the three-level underground art museum and gallery. Phew!
For Allanah Dopson, Handmark’s Director, the gallery is an ode to the “... handmade, the family of Tasmanian artists we represent, and our great staff”. Having opened in 1980, Handmark celebrates the diverse and eclectic talents that have emerged from the Tasmanian arts scene over the years. Established and emerging artists’ work can be found at the gallery, situated in a coveted building in the historic hub of Salamanca.
This well-known long-running market is a must-visit for market lovers in Hobart. Salamanca Market celebrated 50 years of running last year, and in that time it’s grown to over 300 stallholders, encompassing just about anything local you can think of, from record and woodwork stalls to honey and whisky producers. So central you can shuffle straight from one of Hobart’s fab hotels into an excellent coffee and a Lady Hester sourdough donut.
Stay in the heart of the city at Moss Hotel, with its prime location being a springboard to the best of Hobart’s rich culture, history, world-famous cuisine and the natural beauty of real Tasmania. Designed with incredible attention to detail, every element of your experience here has been highly considered.
