I would recommend East Launceston and Newstead. Personally i live in Newstead and it is super close to cafes, shops and schools which is convenient. Also only a short 10 minute walk to the CBD for all other needs.
I agree that Newstead and East Launceston are great locations for amenities and schools. Legana (which is 15 minutes out of Launceston) is also an up and coming area, with a great shopping hub and a Primary School due to be built within the next 2 years.
