What is Hello Hobart?

Hello Hobart promotes Hobart, its retail stores, its cafes and restaurants, and everything that makes Hobart special. We share the stories of the people behind the stores, their inspiration and celebrate the enthusiasm they bring to this wonderful city.

Who is behind Hello Hobart?

Behind Hello Hobart is a team of passionate people who adore shopping in the city centre, finding fresh new places and celebrating the best of the favourites. Hello Hobart is an initiative of the City of Hobart.

Who do you feature?

Well, it’s just Hobart. We’ll include retailers, cafes, restaurants and other lifestyle businesses within the suburb of Hobart. This area includes the city centre, the waterfront, up as far as Warwick Street and along as far as Barrack Street, and all the other places that fall into this general area.

We love everyone, but we want to focus on everything that makes Hobart enjoyable. Occasionally we will feature professional services or stores from further afield, but only if there is a vibrant story to tell.

How do I get promoted on Hello?

We love enthusiasm. Please drop us an email to [email protected] and let us know about your business and what makes it special. If it suits what we are after, we will arrange a time to visit you in your store so we can ask lots of questions. We will also take some photographs while we are there (we are very keen on people shots).

What is the fine print?

Well it’s free and that’s pretty impressive in today’s busy world. We do, however, have a few simple requests. You must like, share and engage with our post about your business (this helps us help you). There is also a super-quick survey to complete so we can find out if the promotion helped you. And finally, we would love you to stay in touch and come to some of our networking events.

Stay in touch

We would love you to join our mailing list. We promise not to spam you and will only email you if we have something important to share.

Networking events

No sit down static lunches here. Hello Hobart organises regular shindigs for business owners where you can meet other business owners. They are small and casual. And we provide free drinks and nibbles. Nice.
