Exploring Hobart and Salamanca Place

Produce at Salamanca Market

The bugs in Tasmania were eating me alive – literally 56 bites to count on both legs. I want to die.  The walk to Hobart CBD was really nice: a little bit chilly but a crystal clear day with blue skies.

Hobart is the second oldest Australian city and still has a lot of old, historic brick buildings. I love all the cobblestone roads.

It was Saturday so the Salamanca Market was held in Salamanca Place. It’s a huge tourist attraction and because of all the hippie types, there’s a lot of interesting things to see. Lots of pictures of the extinct Tasmanian Tiger, which is the mascot for Cascade Brewery.

Tasmanian Tiger

Tasmania is known for excellent seafood, cheese and fudge. Definitely found great samples of each. I bought this amazing tea towel. Not sure who its for yet but I had to buy it simply for how ridiculous it is.

Atrocious but can’t deny it has character. The Tasmanian Devil is on pretty much everything. It’s always shown  screaming because they have
a terrible screech. In the zoos they are actually pretty cute; kind of like giant dog-hamster things.

I wandered around bought a small bottle of Tasmanian wine for my dad, honey for my mom, and then just sat on the grass and listened to some bloke play guitar.

Now you can pretend you were there! Have a listen.
