ABC Hobart occupies the site of the original railway station built for the Tasmanian Main Line Railway Company in the 1870s. The site gradually expanded and became the largest rail terminus in the state, with more than 70 trains coming and going each day at its peak in the 1960s. The 2.6 hectare site was sold to the ABC in 1985 and today the ABC Hobart building houses four radio studios as well as live music and production studios and a large television studio. The building is also home to 13 different tenants, including other local media and organisations.
The ABC Giving Tree Appeal is Tasmania’s biggest Christmas charity, celebrating over 30 years of generosity from the community. Following another very tough year for many, together we can help by raising donations for Tasmanians most in need over the holiday season. The Giving Tree Appeal will be launching on Saturday 13th November with a special Open Day event at ABC Hobart.
Join us in the ABC Hobart foyer between 10am – 12pm to make a donation and take a photo with the giant Christmas tree. There’ll be entertainment and ABC Kids activities too! While we aren’t accepting physical gifts or hosting building tours this year, you can make a cash donation and leave a Christmas card for a Tasmanian in need.
