Hobart Savings Bank
24a Murray Street, Hobart
BOOKINGS OPEN 12 NOON AEDT, THURSDAY 6 OCTOBER, 2022
The Hobart Savings Bank was established on Collins Street by a group of Hobart entrepreneurs in 1845. In 1859, a new building on Murray Street became the new head office of the Hobart Savings Bank, which was later known as the Savings Bank of Tasmania, the Tasmania Bank and the Trust Bank. More recently, the elegant sandstone building’s infamous red awnings have inspired a public heritage debate. Whatever your opinion, the beautifully preserved interior is a sight to behold.
