A mid-century icon of Hobart, the Roundabout Fountain was the result of a Hobart City Council design competition won by a trio of young designers from the Cadbury factory in Claremont. It was opened to the public in 1963 and restored for its 50th anniversary in 2013. Today it looks as fresh and futuristic as it did 60 years ago.

*  On Saturday, 11 November, Open House Hobart ask everyone to observe a minute silence at 11 am for Remembrance Day.
