Hunter Street in Hobart is a captivating cultural hub that weaves together a rich history and modern allure.
In 1820, a causeway was built connecting Hunter Island to Hobart’s shore. A cultural precinct was born. This precinct has emerged as a vibrant waterfront destination, drawing visitors from far and wide.

Today it’s home to cafes, bars, restaurants, art galleries, the University Art School, The Henry Jones Art Hotel and much more.
