Every Sunday, come rain, hail or shine, a busy street in the heart of Hobart transforms into a bustling farmers’ market. It’s all about Tasmanian produce and getting to know your farmer, and it always has been.
Farm Gate Market operates every Sunday on Bathurst St (street market) between Murray + Elizabeth Streets from 8.30am – 1.00pm.
Trade begins with the ringing of the farm bell!
‘Located on top of the floating Brooke Street Pier, the terminal for ferries to MONA, Aløft has spectacular, sparkling views of the Derwent River that add excitement to the understated glamour of Nordic-style blond-wood interiors under a peaked roof. The focus is on meticulously sourced local ingredients in clever Asian-accented dishes.’ Gourmet Traveller

Dark MOFO is an annual event organised and sponsored by MONA and Hobart City Council. The event transpires all over the CBD and surrounding areas but is concentrated in the city. It features light shows and awe-inspiring displays of artwork, normally thought provoking. As well as this, it features acts and gigs by various artists and a two-weekend long feast on Macquarie Point. The event attracts 500,000 people to Tasmania and for good reason. If you’re in Hobart during Dark Mofo, it is a must do event.
