Constitution Dock

History seeps from the stones on Hobart’s waterfront, where colonial buildings are now galleries and where you can eat fresh seafood and watch a famous yacht race.

Stroll past historic buildings, enjoy a meal at a waterfront restaurant or grab a snack from a fresh seafood stall at Hobart’s Constitution Dock.

Take your time as you explore this historic area that fuses the old and new. Admire the Georgian sandstone warehouses lining the dock that were built in the 1830s. These buildings were once used to store wool, grain and whale oil but are now converted into businesses, galleries and restaurants. At the north of the waterfront is the Gasworks Village where you can browse galleries and craft shops and sample whisky at the distillery.

Walk along the water's edge and see the historical features of the dock. Look out for the Hobart Heritage Steam Crane that was built in 1899 and the 1935 drawbridge that still operates today.

Book in for a historical walking tour around the harbour. Hunter Street, on the north side, is where the first British ships threw down their anchor. Between the docks and Salamanca Place is Tasmania’s Parliament House. Stroll through the landscaped garden at St Davids’ Park. Once a burial ground, it retains many of the original headstones and monuments. See the historic houses and the remnants of Hobart’s military defence Battery Point.

Find some inspiration at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and visit Salamanca Place, known for its popular Saturday market. Here you can buy handmade crafts and artwork and pick up fresh produce from local farms. 

A trip to Constitution Dock would not be complete without experiencing the fresh seafood. Dine at one of the restaurants on the water or pick up some of the day's catch from the local fishermen. If you are here just after Christmas, experience the thrill of the classic international Sydney to Hobart yacht race.

Constitution Dock is located at the southeast end of Franklin Wharf, on Sullivan’s Cove, and is a 5-minute walk from the city centre.
