We are a couple living in inner city Hobart. We have a 3 bedroom apartment in the middle of the city above shops and we've been living in Hobart for just over four years. We really love it here. Hobart is a great small city teeming with artists, musicians, creative types and other generally interesting people. I work in hospitality and arts admin and my partner is an artist who mostly makes a living from his art. Like many artists, he has been known to tend a bar or take on laboring work to make a buck in between paid art income. At the moment, he is working in a boutique brewery as well as an award winning Tasmanian whiskey distillery.
The famous Salamanca markets on every Saturday are about ten mins walk away. Salamanca is a great area for bars and restaurants as well. There is a farmers market on every Sunday over the road from our place that is excellent for fresh amazing produce; something that Tasmania is famous for. Being in the middle of the city, our location is great for business stop overs, or as a base to explore further.
We are looking forward to meeting people from all over!
