Brooke Street Pier is home to an eclectic mix of local businesses and a gateway to some of Tasmania’s most unique experiences.

Conveniently located on Hobart’s busy waterfront, Brooke Street Pier is a must-see destination when visiting the CBD. Luggage storage lockers are located on the boarding deck level if you don’t feel like dragging your bags around town.

It is Australia’s only multi-story floating pier – the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere.* Part building, part boat – 80m long and 20m wide, the entire structure rises and falls with the tide.

The structure’s ‘foundation’ consists of 4200 tonnes of floating concrete – most of which sits below the waterline.

Built locally (five nautical miles upriver) and towed into place by two tugboats, the building was officially opened in January, 2015.
