"Great Suburb - Terrible street!"

I was one of the unfortunate people that chose this street to buy a block of land and build, whilst I was thrilled with the house the Street was terrible, lots of domestic violence, loud music and problems with people walking through the street, vandalising etc. Hence I along with 4 other newly built houses, decided enough was enough and SOLD and got out. The best decision I ever made!! Blackmans Bay is a great place, but you really do need to rent first to find out the problem streets, because there are many.

"Great place to live with awesome views. Everything you could need."

Blackmans Bay is a beachside suburb located south of Hobart, Tasmania and was named after a James Blackman who occupied land there in the 1820s. The town is located adjacent to Kingston, and is approximately fourteen kilometres south of Hobart, to which it is connected by the Southern Outlet motorway.

Blackmans Bay has three primary schools from kindergarten to grade six: Blackmans Bay, Illawarra, established in the late 1980s, and the Catholic St. Aloysius. There is also a beach and shopping centre within walking distance of most homes. The shopping centre includes a supermarket, newsagency, doctor's surgery, pharmacy, butcher and a variety of other stores.

There is a blowhole near the northern end of the beach, but in reality it's more like a large arch where waves can be seen coming in and crashing on the rocks. There are numerous cliffs and viewpoints along Blowhole Road. On the southern side of the beach, there is a track that leads to flowerpot point. This is a popular spot for fishing, although snags are an issue because of the prevalence of seaweed and rock ledges beneath the water.

Our property is located on Hillside Drive, a quiet street that overlooks the bay. There is also a sensational dog beach on the far side of Brown river.
