Insightful comments, informative and responsive to... More

We were so impressed, and going on another walk was the first thing I thought of when we booked a return trip. This time the walk was in the Salamanca area and we met Sarah... More

I headed to Hobart with the main aim of visiting the MONA and decided on my last day to join a morning HobARTwalk run by Christine Scott and Sarah Beith. What a great choice! Our group was small and the pace of the walk leisurely - while at the same time being both stimulating and inspiring. Hobart is chockablock full... More

We did the Cove art walk, which covers the story of the historic Henry Jones Art Hotel itself, its art collection and galleries, the university's school of art and art galleries and artists' studios at Salamanca Place. The pace is very relaxed, our guides Christine and Sarah were very knowledgeable, and the opportunity to go behind the scenes at all... More
