RESTORATION AUSTRALIA: Harrington Street

I always looked forward to a trip down to Hobart where I would squeeze in some downtime between filming. Not only is MONA always a must-see but Haydn & Penny have a fabulous antiques & vintage business called Willow Court. It is full to the brim of loot & treasure. I always came home with a heavy bag or a load following me on the boat.

(Without sounding like a Tourism Tasmania representative) If you can, spend some time at Salamanca Markets of a Saturday and grab a coffee at Tricycle Cafe. Or walk around Battery Point and stop at Jackman & McRoss for baked deliciousness. For some road tripping try the Huon Valley to Willie Smiths for organic cider & lunch or head to Richmond and the Derwent Valley for some beautiful old towns & great antique shopping. Haydn is a wealth of information & has been salvaging building materials for decades - I not only come home with half his store but definitely with a lot more knowledge!
