Who we are

The Tasmanian Map Centre in Hobart sells maps, globes, nautical charts and all sorts of wonderful travel related merchandise and Tasmaniana.

We are an authorised Australian Hydrographic Chart retailer and have been the go-to source for charts for both local and visiting yachties, fisherfolk and mariners for the last 20 years.

We pride ourselves on having the largest travel guide range in Hobart as well as stocking the entire range of the latest and amazing Lonely Planet Guidebook series.  A series which is constantly growing and has more recently started producing a Children’s series of Travel Guides and atlases.


The Tasmanian Map Centre was founded in 1998.  Starting as a stall in the iconic Salamanca Market on Hobart’s waterfront, a bricks and mortar store was set up in Elizabeth Street due to increased demand for product and repeated requests from customers!
