Shopping in Tasmania is an absolute pleasure. The variety of clothing, boutique housewares and jewellery available will have you come home a happy shopper.

Settling down in a new city can take you a while. You start a new home from scratch and have to get familiar with the neighbourhood and how to get those everyday tasks done. Finding the right shop for any one of the several needs you may have is essential. After all, while you have to know where all the indulgent shopping is, it’s equally important that you know where you can head to, to find the essentials.

Food and beverage

Surveys show that Hobart in Tasmania has the cheapest groceries available and that they are of great quality. Among the branded supermarkets you have Woolworths and Coles that you can always depend on. The fruits and vegetables available at Salamanca Fresh are definitely worth your time. On the slightly pricier side is Hill Street Grocer, but you can be assured of some great deals here. The Macquarie Supermarket is a great suburban market for you to explore.

If you are looking for some gourmet food stores, then one option could be Aproneers in Lindisfarne. They deal with ethically sourced fruit, vegetables and meat as well as create healthy pre-prepared meals. Bottega Rotolo is another great gourmet store where you can pick up some great cheese, coffee and wine. Farmgate market is famous for its strong belief in freshness and local produce.

If you are looking to stock your home bar, then you can take your pick at stores like Liquor Stax and Dan Murphy’s that have several outlets. Duncans too has well located branches that you can head to. In the Hobart area you can visit places like BWS, ALM, The Cheaper Liquor Store and Cellarbrations.

Homeware stores

Setting up a new home is not an easy task. While you may have moved to Tasmania with a lot of your things (contact Ausmove to help with this, from packing to storage and shipping) but you will always want to know where the closest homeware store is to pick up some essentials.

For everyday homeware requirements there are a range of stores to visit, each of which have multiple branches. So you are sure to find one that is close to you. Some great options are Betta Home and Typo Hobart in Hobart. The Forty Winks store and the Carpet Court Modern are also places you will want to visit.

If you are looking for antiques, the Drill Hall Emporium in New Norfolk is a good bet. The Flywheel boutique stationary store is a wonderful place to pick up some stationary of vintage styles. GREY and FELT is a curated store in Sandy Bay that stocks a chosen few designer brands that are influenced by the Scandinavian culture.

Clothing and jewellery

There are several malls where you will find great bargain shopping for clothes all year round. If you are looking for something unique and special, then there are a host of boutiques such as The Maker. Designer Leonie Struthers has her own studio where she creates gorgeous outfits.

If you are looking for unique jewellery, then Masons Studio Jeweller is a tiny place that you should visit. Each piece of jewellery combines the traditional with the contemporary and you will have a piece that will be a conversation starter.

shopping for clothes

Clothing for little ones, especially those looking to be magical fairies can be found at The Faerie Shop. For some flea market style shopping, you will love Salamanca Market, the Hobart Twilight Market as well as the Island Markets in Derwent.

You always have the malls to head to when you want to do some regular brand shopping. Some of the other main shopping centres are Cat and Fiddle Market, Centrepoint Shopping Centre, Trafalgar Shopping Centre, Glenorchy Central Shopping Centre and the Northgate Shopping Centre.


We all love our electronics and you will want to know where you can get all that you need to set you up well. There are a few well known chains that most people prefer.

You can be assured of good customer interactions, post-sales service and of course value-based deals.

General shopping

Book lovers can spend a good amount of time in places like the Hobart Book Shop, Fullers Bookshop, Cracked and Spineless New and Used Books, Stories Bookshop and more. You are sure to find that one treasure that you will want to add to your library.

The great thing about shopping in Tasmania is that most shops also have online versions of their brand and you can relax at home and get your shopping done as well. But with the legendary good weather of Tasmania, stepping out to shop is always a pleasure.
