Visit North Hobart if you want to eat well, browse book shops, have a glass of wine and watch a movie all in one day. Its the part of Hobart that has a local vibe at all times - more locals and less tourists. On bus routes, walking distance from the city (15 mins). Its Hobart's equivalent of King Street... More

I stayed in North Hobart and loved the selection of restaurants in the area. I tried something different each night. From a quick bite to gourmet food, everything is catered for. There is even a cat cafe where you can go in and stroke the cats while you have coffee and cake. Definitely worth a visit if you love cats.

Tucked away are some nice cafes and bars, and this is a more happening place in a Tasmanian kind of way.

Get the hell away from Salamanca Place and go see where the locals shop, eat and hang on the weekend. There's a divine sweetie shop, a fantastic bookshop and a movie theater. You could spend a whole day getting lost on this one little strip. Fun.

The location of fantastic, great value restaurants close to the city. There is also an amazing lolly shop to end all lolly shops, The Renown, definitely worth a visit for anyone with a sweet tooth. Great bookshop, State Theatre? I think, with attached coffee shop. Awesome funky op shop. Wander around and enjoy!

While originally disappointed to not find accommodation in Hobart, staying in North Hobart was a blessing in disguise. So many amazing places to eat and window shop. Loved being so close to so many eateries.

I was actually staying (regrettably) in West Hobart but would make a regular journey to North Hobart, they have a great selection of restaurants, especially "Tickled Red Smokehouse". The owner's such a friendly guy and services good quality food.
