You'll need a few hours to explore the 300 stalls when you can meet the makers and soak up the rich sights, sounds and colour of one of Australia's best outdoor markets. 

After beginning humbly in the summer of 1972 with only fifteen stalls, Salamanca Market now operates every Saturday year-round and stretches the entire length of Salamanca Place.

Salamanca Market is a special experience, full of colour and vibrancy and those who give it more than a cursory glance will be well rewarded. The market is open every Saturday from 8.30am – 3.00pm



Richmond is a picture-perfect town in the heart of the Coal River Valley wine region that tells the story of an early Australian colonial village. This is the perfect place to learn about Tasmania's past and can be as easy as a stroll down the pretty nineteenth century streets.

Richmond has more than 50 Georgian buildings, many beautifully restored and now operating as cafes, restaurants, galleries and accommodation.

The town's most photographed landmark is the Richmond Bridge. Built by convicts in the 1820s, it's the oldest bridge in Australia and offers a perfect picnic spot on the grassy banks of the Coal River.

The Richmond Gaol is also the oldest gaol in Australia. Standing inside the stone cells gives an eerie insight into the hardships and brutality of convict life in early Van Diemen's Land.

Not so confronting is the Hobart Town Historical Model Village where you can learn about the life of settlers in Hobart in the 1820s.
