From an­tiques to col­lecta­bles and mar­kets, you’re sure to find the per­fect sou­venir.


Head for the his­toric vil­lages of Evan­dale and Rich­mond to browse beau­ti­ful shops stock­ing ev­ery­thing from rare fur­ni­ture to cu­rios. Find ex­quis­ite an­tiques at Evan­dale An­tiques, Rich­mond’s Wal­ter & Co, Red Tree De­sign and Sad­dlers Court Gallery. Also in Rich­mond, spend an hour or two brows­ing through knick-knacks and sec­ond-hand goods. And if you’re vis­it­ing Cygnet, look out for an­tiques at Trove.

New Nor­folk’s Drill Hall Em­po­rium has beau­ti­fully dis­played vin­tage cook­ware, gar­den ac­ces­sories, and fur­ni­ture. And you’ll find rooms of fur­ni­ture, vinyl records, books, vin­tage tools, and other para­pher­na­lia at the town’s Wil­low Court An­tique Cen­tre. Fly­wheel, a sta­tionery and let­ter­press stu­dio, is def­i­nitely a must-visit.


In Cygnet, find lo­cally made or­ganic skin-care prod­ucts at Home & Body and artist’s stu­dios in­clud­ing Stan­ley’s Stu­dio/ Gallery and The Whis­per­ing Tree. Time a visit with The Cygnet Mar­ket, on the first and third Sun­day of ev­ery month.

There’s plenty of shop­ping in North Ho­bart. The State Cinema Book­store and the Bett Gallery, rep­re­sent­ing many of Tas­ma­nia’s finest artists, are good places to start. Head to Flora Gond­wana, set in a Ba­li­nese style gar­den, for gifts, and when you’re ready for a break drop into The Ital­ian Pantry for lunch or to buy the in­gre­di­ents for a pic­nic. As well as Sala­manca Place’s well­known gal­leries, seek out some of Ho­bart’s lesser-known gems: car­toon­ist Jon Kudelka’s quirky Phone Box Gallery; Astro­labe Book­sellers’ rare book col­lec­tion; and The Faerie Shop.
