Salamanca Place , on the waterfront of Hobart, consists of rows of sandstone buildings, formerly warehouses for the port of Hobart Town, but now used as cafés and offices. Kelly's Steps, between two of the buildings, leads to the historic suburb of Battery Point.

Each Saturday morning, roads leading to Salamanca Place are closed for the Salamanca Market. Local traders sell everything from honey to straw dolls, and buskers provide entertainment. At the northern end of Salamanca Place is St. David's Park, a popular lunchtime relaxation spot for the city's workers.
