Salamanca square

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Salamanca Square began its life as a quarry that dates back to the earliest days of the Sullivan’s Cove settlement in the early 19th Century. The quarry is still visible behind the modern apartments and the shops, cafes, bars and restaurants that line the Square and stands as a significant symbol of Hobart’s history and the sweat and toil of our convicts and early settlers.
Today Salamanca Square offers a piazza space for relaxing and entertainment, It’s a safe environment with no cars and it’s great in winter as it’s a sun trap. Businesses are open 7 days a week until late.
