Join us in this two part video series as we share the best way for adults to see the highlights of Hobart over one weekend.

The quick weekend away in Hobart is the perfect opportunity to gain a true taste of this incredible southern city. Hobart is Australia’s most southern state capital and is home to around 218,000 Tasmanians and it is fair to say that this city has really come into its own in the last decade.

In part one of our “Adult Guide to the Best Weekend in Hobart” series, we visit the Salamanca Markets, the Hobart waterfront, Mona – museum of old and new art and have an amazing degustation meal at the acclaimed Black Footed Pig restaurant.

Salamanca Place is a picturesque row of four-storey sandstone warehouses that dates back to the 1830s. These days Salamanca offers a dizzying array of bars, restaurants, cafes, arts centres and shops.

Make sure you visit Salamanca Markets on Saturday mornings where it is jam packed with arts, creafts and fabtastic food and bevegage offersings.




MONA (The Museum of Old & New Art) has changed the perceptions of what Art galleries could and should be.

Make no mistake, this is not your average museum as the art installations confront, challenge and sometime appal its visitors.

To get there, you will be required to catch a ferry from the Hobart waterfront, and we definitely recommend that you upgrade your ticket for a VIP experience seat in the ‘Posh Pit’ for champagne and canapés en-route.

To finish off this amazing day we enjoy a degustation dinner at The Black Footed Pig Tapas Bar & Kitchen. The Black Footed Pig, is a intimate restaurant tucked away from the main street in Hobart’s waterfront.

The restaurant specialises in serving up flavours of the world through their unique tapas, raciones and dessert menus using fresh local produce that has been ethically sourced and sustainably grown.

As you will see in the video, it is truly a meal to remember and a credit to the dynamic food scene that has developed in Hobart.
