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.
Celebrate the launch of the annual Giving Tree Appeal and join a radio and television studio tour from 10.30am – 2.30pm, plus greenscreen photobooths and other family-friendly activities in the foyer.
