I enjoyed all the markets and gift shops in Salamance. Very old world charm and some lovely and reasonably priced gift shops to visit.

It's tourist central, not a bad thing. Generally it has the souvenirs, overpriced art, good coffee, plenty of food, occasional music and at least 40% locals. It's the hub but won't change your life.

In this historical area, was pleased to see a broad range of both shops and exhibitions. I was particularly enamoured with the Mosaic Exhibition, presently displayed (free entry) and I thought most worthwhile.

A must-see and -do. Tasmania is huge on promoting their local artisans... everything from wood-turned Huon Pine to the first Australian saffron farm. You do need to get in early, particularly if the weather is inclement. However, parking was not a problem and was very...More

Yes, you can take photos for person use throughout Salamanca Arts Centre. However there may be some exhibitions where this is not allowed. If in doubt, please ask the gallery sitters for that particular exhibition.
