One of the most noteworthy parts of the city, Salamanca Place is known for its historic warehouses, which feature Georgian-style facades and appealing architecture, located along the waterfront on the southern side of Hobart, close to Battery Point. Other attractions further south include the University of Hobart, Sandy Beach and the Wrest Point Casino complex.
Situated to the north of Hobart city centre you will find a major recreation area known locally as the Domain. Home to the Botanical Gardens, this area is dominated by the Derwest River and the Tasman Bridge, an eye-catching structure forming part of the Tasman Highway and ultimately leading to Hobart Airport, Midway Point and Sorell.
