Tasmania’s Salamanca Markets

Every Saturday - 8:30AM

Held every Saturday at Hobart’s waterfront, offering a diverse range of woodwork, fashion, Jewellery, ceramics, glassware and food and produce.


Every Friday night between 5.30-7.30pm

An amazingly cool event that's held – free – every Friday night between 5.30-7.30pm in The Courtyard at Salamanca. It's a family-friendly event, so you can bring your kids, but it's also uber hipster and alternative too. Basically, Rektango is about getting your funk on to a local live band – but don't expect any trashy 80s pub cover bands here. It's all about the funk, soul, reggae and blues.

Second Tuesday of each month from 7.30pm

Open Mic Nights are just as fun to attend and cheer (or jeer?) on new talent as they are to perform at.

Irish Murphy's in Salamanca hosts them every Tuesday from 9pm.
