Not sure what there is to buy in Hobart? You may be surprised by the range of Hobart shopping options.
The CBD has stores from many big domestic and international brands, as well as groups of independent shops in the inner-city malls and the arcade. There are also smaller laneways and side streets hidden all over the city where you’ll find stores exclusive to Hobart. Many small shops and markets stock the work of local makers, revealing great opportunities to bring home unique souvenirs for yourself, your family, and your friends.
Salamanca Market, with its vibrant stalls and live music, provides a wonderful place for buying not only food but also books, flowers, accessories, and all sorts of special knick-knacks. Alternatively, if you’re looking for something a little more “out there”, the Museum of Old and New Art Market (MONA Market) is a welcoming and in-your-face celebration of music, performance, art, science, and food.
Hobart’s shopping centres are great places to enjoy some downtime and escape the elements. Any day-to-day necessities or travel essentials you forgot to pack will be easy to come by. If you’re looking for a relaxed shopping setting, Centrepoint on Murray Street is a great choice as it’s quiet with a small selection of quality stores.
