For me, the Salamanca markets were, well, markets......and not that fabulous.....but I’d your wife is anything like mine....you’ll be spending a day there :rolleyes:....plenty more to see !
    Travel safely, cheers,
    Mark

    I have to agree with Mark - they are a bit over-hyped.

    While in Hobart, you might like to see where women are made.......
    The Cascade Women’s Factory.....:rolleyes:
    .....but seriously.....a really well preserved and modernised historic site, well worth a visit.
    Cheers,
    Mark

    You guys are harsh - love Salamanca markets

    $20 for 50ml bottles of Nant Whiskey & some great food stalls and some great music.

    If you like steel guitar slide blues, there is a young guy called “Magnus”

    https://www.mangusandco.com/

    He just plays some of the best music in the middle of Salamanca

    And the Laundromat Cafe behind does brilliant brunch.

    Jack Green - not sure if they are the best pub that sell burgers or the best burger bar that sells beer

    Staying in the Shipwrights Arms. Walking distance to the pier and Salamanca area.
    great people there, great food, off street parking.
    Would recommend it to kombi people.

    here's the original 1842

    Here it is today

    27.jpg


    Change in plans tomorrow.
    Mona is closed on Tuesdays (not advertised on line, said 7 days a week)
    So Port Arthur tomorrow, Mona Wednesday morning and the lookout over Hobart in the arvo.
    Means Lime bay free camping out and a southern loop in with a camp on the way.
    More pics soon.

    Make sure you catch the Mona Roma out to Mona - great fun

    If you are short of somewhere to eat (doubt it) Da Angelo's and Jackman & McRoss are 2 great places on Hampden Road

    Looks like you are having a ball.
    Btw can’t agree with Mel and Mark about Salamanca. Been to a lot of markets on the mainland and even though I might be biased, there isn’t anything quite like it, but each to his own.

    Heading home today from the boat.

    Few pics of Mona
    An impressive place. Some really great art work, some really disappointing stuff as well.

    Went for a drive on the Channel Hwy through Huonville, Cygnet, Verona Sands, Woodbridge and ended up in a nice little spot called Snug.

    Decided to leave Bruny island till next time
