Banners and signage

The City of Hobart has a range of signage options available for hire.

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).

The City of Hobart also offers a Civic Banner Quick Response Grant of up to $1000 for the manufacturing of Civic Banners. The grant is designed to assist not-for-profit community organisations who are delivering projects with a community benefit.
