"Great place to live"

Located roughly 45 minutes to Hobart this little town has the peaceful country beauty but also the hustle and bustle of town not far away, it has most of the amenities you will need, doctors,chemist, 2 schools (1 private and 1 public).

Another bonus is that there are some great little beaches which are within a 15 minute drive from the town centre, quite often when you go you will have these beaches to yourself or very few people. It's also a very safe area, you very rarely hear of any hooligans around the street which is very rare in todays society. All in all a great place for the family.
Pros
  • Very safe
  • Nice Beaches
  • Friendly people
