Spend the day with us in New Town, one of Hobart’s oldest suburbs. With charming Federation-style and Art Deco architecture, surrounded by quaint cafes and antique shops, let’s explore what makes New Town a true gem. 

But first things first, coffee! 

Let’s check out the new kid on the block, Pedal Bite Coffee & Bicycle Garage!  Tucked away off the corner of Roope Street, you’ll find Russ, Lynnie, and their friendly crew brewing up St Ali coffee and providing detailed bike services for all types of riders. Enjoy a cuppa and a fresh Queens Pastry delight in their cosy garage-turned-coffee-shop. Plus, they’re dog friendly! Visit them at 135a New Town Road. 

Now that we’ve gotten our coffee fix, it’s time to hit the oppies! 

Lose yourself in the treasure trove of unique items at Church Antiques, where you can rummage through vintage collectibles in a charming heritage church with colorful stained-glass windows. Located 30 Cross Street. 

Next stop, across the road is Archive Antiques & Books, one of Hobart’s longest-operating antique dealers, housed in an old Post Office Stores building. This old gem specalises in trading and dealing antiques, books, collectables, art deco furniture, and anything else odd and obscure! Whether you’re a seasoned collector or simply searching for something unique – you’re bound to find it here! Located at 170 New Town Road. 

Further up New Town Road, explore Salvos New Town, where you’ll find unique fashion, second-hand homewares, and furniture ready for a second chance at life. Be sure to set aside plenty of time to explore the store thoroughly – a trip to Salvos mustn’t be rushed, as you never know what you might find! Located at 115 – 117 New Town Road.

All that thrifting has got us working up an appetite, let’s venture over the road where you’ll find the locally renowned New Town Greenstore serving hearty home-style meals made with locally sourced ingredients. This cosy spot makes for the perfect place to relax and refuel after snagging some pre-loved goodies. Located at 138 New Town Road.

After a hefty feed, it’s time for some TLC – let’s head to the nail salon! Lefa Nails and Beauty offers a wide range of nail and brow services as well as other beauty treatments. Treat Yo Self! Located 1/184 New Town Road.

Their menu offers buttery pastries, artisanal loaves of bread, cakes, and savory treats to tickle your taste buds. Located at 32 Cross Street. 

After our sweet treat, it’s time for some serious R&R! We’re heading to Jodi Harrison’s Swim Central for the ultimate relaxation experience. Just 15 minutes on their Dry Hydro Massage bed will leave you feeling completely rejuvenated. Say goodbye to sore muscles, tight shoulders, and tension headaches as the warm water jets work their magic! Find Jodi and the team at 149 New Town Road 

We’re feeling refreshed and ready to end the day with a bang – Spice on Wheels!
