Hello Hobart

Hello Hobart celebrates Hobart, its retail stores, its cafes and restaurants, and everything that makes Hobart special.

New Information Hub

Hello Hobart are teaming up with the Tasmanian Travel and Information Centre (TTIC) to launch the new Information Hub.

Yes that’s right, the old Elizabeth Mall information booth has been completely transformed. The new booth not only looks great but is also home to trained tourism experts who will help with everything from ‘where is the nearest supermarket?’ through to ‘where can I stay at Bay of Fires?’.

We are inviting retailers who work in the city to pop down and say hi, check out the new hub and explore what benefits the new hub can provide stores in the city. The hub is open 10 am to 4.30 pm Monday through to Saturday.

Plus if you pop down between Monday 21 – Wednesday 23 October 2019 and drop off your business card, you could win an advertising package for the new advertising screens in Elizabeth Mall (valued at $300). Full terms and conditions are available here.

What are the highlights of the new hub?

On-site tourism experts
The hub has trained tourism experts on-site to make sure visitors and locals alike get the very best of their time in Hobart and greater Tasmania. You can buy tickets and accommodation through to metro bus passes. These guys know a thing or two about adventure in our island state.

Advertising options
You can advertise with the hub. There are a number of options available including brochure display or affordable outdoor screen advertising.

Where is the new hub exactly?
Located in the Elizabeth Mall, the Information Hub should be easy to spot. It is located opposite Target and Ally Fashion. Open Monday – Saturday 10 am to 4.30 pm (often with a short break in the middle of the day for lunch).


Every Tuesday, starting 20 August until 17 September 2019, we will be posting a #hiddenhobart picture of you guessed it, Hobart! Guess where in Hobart the photo was taken and if you are correct, you go into the draw to win a coffee + sweet treat on us from Straight Up Coffee and Food. There are 5 chances to score yourself a freebie across the campaign.

Straight Up’s coffee is a Hello Hobart favourite and their sweets cabinet is straight up amazing! Worth testing your Hobart knowledge for.

The #hiddenhobart photo might be from anywhere within the city centre, from the Elizabeth Mall, to Franklin Square through to the waterfront. Using your local knowledge (or that of a friend), try and figure out where we have been, post under the #hiddenhobart photo and you are in the running.

We will announce the winner the following day at around 2 pm.

Full terms and conditions are available here.
