Banners and Signage

Civic Banners

Civic Banners are designed to add colour to Hobart's streets and provide a fantastic opportunity to get your message to a wide audience. A typical three-week program can reach more than one million vehicles. Banners are located on poles in the city centre, along the main arterial roads, and in the main shopping precinct areas of North Hobart and Sandy Bay. For more information, view the Civic Banner Guidelines(PDF, 2MB) .
