Salamanca Place Review
Old whaling ships used to dock at Salamanca Place. Today many of the warehouses that were once used by whalers along this street have been converted into crafts shops, art galleries, and restaurants. At the boisterous Saturday market, which attracts all elements of Tasmanian society from hippies to the well-heeled, dealers in Tasmanian arts and crafts, antiques, old records, and books—and a fair bit of appalling junk—display their wares between 8:30 and 3. Keep an eye open for items made from beautiful Tasmanian timber, particularly Huon pine.
