Type of space: Open-air space

    A pedestrian link between Bathurst, Liverpool and Criterion Streets, Mathers Lane is a popular thoroughfare within the city centre. The sloping lane leads to Mathers Place, which contains a manicured, level grassed areas and amphitheatre-style seating to pause and take in the inner city atmosphere.

    Mathers Place provides the perfect venue for outdoor cabaret, theatre and street performances. Because it sits alongside Hobart’s Playhouse Theatre it could provide an outdoor function space for opening nights or roving performances.
