Victoria dock, pictured here, is part of the Franklin Wharf area in Hobart, Tasmania. Both a working waterfront and tourist attraction, the area is famous for fresh seafood served by the many restaurants, cafes and floating carry out establishments located in the area. By day, the wharf is awash with pedestrians often looking for an eatery with available seating.
Every two years Franklin Wharf is the site of the Australian Wooden Boat Festival, the largest gathering of historic craft in the Southern Hemisphere. The Sydney and Melbourne to Hobart yachts dock nearby each New Year after crossing the finish line of this long ocean race.
The Sullivans Cove Waterfront Authority and Tasports work together to manage Franklin Wharf as a working port and as an important public space.
