(Those who have viewed the preceding shots in this series will probably want to skip the following descriptive text ...)
Salamanca Place, on Hobarts historic waterfront, consists of a long row of stylish Georgian sandstone warehouses built in the 1830s. The buildings now house boutiques, bars, bookshops, restaurants, outdoor cafes, art studios, craft galleries and jewellers.
On Saturdays, Salamanca Place comes alive with the popular Salamanca Market, where over 300 stallholders sell quality produce and crafts from all over Tasmania - here you can buy anything from a handmade wooden toy to a handspun, hand-knitted sweater to a fresh peach to a 50-year-old china plate. The nearby green lawns and park benches are shaded by plane trees that twinkle with tiny fairy lights in the evenings.
