South Hobart village

The inner suburban village of South Hobart rewards a little time spent exploring and enjoying its charms.

The stretch of Macquarie Street between the intersection with the Southern Outlet and the Cascade Brewery, nestled at the foot of Mount Wellington, offers a pleasant place to stroll and take one’s time. Lined with cafes, food stores and restaurants, an eclectic range of shops offer a quirky choice of crafts, second hand goods and home wares.

Quiet side streets offer a glimpse of everyday life in Hobart, while a short detour along the top end of Davey Street passes some of the city’s grandest early mansions.
