Hide and Seek - Hobart


So you’ve been to MONA? Check. And you’ve had your fish and chips down at the docks? Check. So where to next in Tassie’s capital city? Enter Hide & Seek Hobart, featuring thirty of the city’s best-kept secrets (... until now). These secret gems have been carefully selected and reviewed by in-the-know locals Dale Campisi and Michael Brady – just for you.

Have you ever wondered where there are galleries that have no name (read street art)? Or where to find a theatre with over 175 years of history? Or where you can find vintage clothes and get your Mad Men on? Or where the locals go to quench their night-time thirst and maybe hang out in the Kissing Room? You will find all these answers, plus much more, in Hide & Seek Hobart.

The little pocket book (140mm x 140mm) is for those keen to trek the paths less travelled. Locals and visitors alike will find delightful outcomes when they discover these new places in Hobart. There’s something for everyone, no matter what your tastes or interests. Dale and Michael have also made sure these hidden gems won’t burn a hole in your wallet!

The book has four sections including Hit The Streets, Treasure Trove, Feeling Peckish? and Night Owl.

Hit the Streets is all about discovering unique experiences, galleries and museums on and off the beaten track. Treasure Trove will take you to the most intriguing shops for everything from clothing to vintage homewares.

When you are Feeling Peckish?, you can eat your way through the cafes and restaurants that showcase Tasmania’s delicious produce. And finally after a delightful day – when day becomes night – make sure you take a peek inside Hobart’s growing and sometimes underground bar culture in the final section, Night Owl.

Each place is featured over a double-page spread with a description, contact details, a handy location map and a collage of images, which immerse the reader into each location.

Are you brave enough to head down the paths and discover the secrets in Hide & Seek Hobart? As St. Augustine once said, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” Make sure you read every page and check out the new adventures that await you in Hobart.
