  • We visit family in Hobart several times a year and have driven past Long Beach Playground so many times and never stopped. We will definitely be stopping for a play next time we are in town. Another free place to visit is The Courtyard at Salamanca on a Friday evening to attend the weekly Rektango gathering. With local bands playing funk and soul, everyone, including kids, can dance their feet off.
