Every day thousands of people walk the streets of nipaluna/Hobart CBD without understanding the events that shaped this city, or knowing the significance of Aboriginal history.
Mather’s Place is the building between the Hobart Library and the Playhouse Theatre.
The entrance is via the small grassy courtyard off Bathurst St, where you’ll find a seating area and a set of sliding glass doors. This particular Venue is being used as the starting point for takara nipaluna and will end at Parliament Lawns.
The tour is fully wheelchair accessible. The tour is 1.4km with 15 stops, an accessible toilet break halfway through, and a number of sit down locations. The walk is mostly downhill, with one inclined section from The Mall to Franklin Square.
The waterfront can be cool in the evenings. Please dress for our fabulous and ever-changeable Hobart weather.
There is paid on-street parking in and around Bathurst St, free after 6:00/6:30.
Given we finish at Parliament lawn, you may prefer to park in the Salamanca Square car park (closes 8pm) or Arygle St car park (closes 10:00pm) and walk the 1km to the start of the tour. Please note: Hobart Central Car Park (the closest to Mathers House) closes at 6:30, so don’t park there.
