Salamanca Place information
Lonely Planet review
This picturesque row of four-storey sandstone warehouses on Sullivans Cove is a wonderful example of colonial architecture and Australia's best-preserved historic urban precinct. Salamanca Place was the hub of old Hobart Town's trade and commerce, but by the mid-20th century many of these 1830s whaling-era buildings had become decrepit ruins. The 1970s saw the dawning of Tasmania's sense of 'heritage', from which flowed a push to revive the warehouses as home to restaurants, cafes, bars and shops.
Showcasing a vibrant cultural scene, the Salamanca Arts Centre occupies seven Salamanca warehouses and is home to many galleries, studios, performing arts venues and public spaces.
To reach Salamanca Place from Battery Point, descend the well-weathered Kelly's Steps .
