Heard of Salamanca Market? You’re in prime position, just a short walk away. Every Saturday, Salamanca comes to life, hosting Australia’s largest outdoor market. There are vodka distillers, furniture designers, affable buskers and apple growers ready to meet.

The Salamanca precinct might be at its merriest come Saturday, but hums seven days a week. There are alfresco dinners to enjoy, baristas aplenty, cosy breakfast nooks and galleries that reward those who wander down alleyways. Head up Kelly’s Steps and find yourself in historic Battery Point. Salamanca is best explored on foot, close to Georgian sandstone warehouses built back in the 1830s.
