Who we are

Welcome to Geographica!

Based in Hobart, we sell maps, globes, nautical charts and all sorts of wonderful travel related merchandise and Tasmaniana. We are an Australian Veteran owned business and wholly Tasmanian-owned and operated. 

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 shop has been operating in the beautiful waterfront city of Hobart since 1998.  Starting as a stall in the iconic Salamanca Market on Hobart’s waterfront, we are known locally as the ‘Map Shop,’ and we are a map and specialty book store.  The shop changed hands towards the end of 2016 when the original owners embarked on their well-deserved retirement!  It’s been taken on by two locals who have moved back from Sydney to see the map shop into the future.

We sell wall maps, bushwalking maps, nautical charts, globes and a wide variety of travel, navigational and recreational products. We also sell GPS units, 4WD Adventure guidebooks and much more.
