"Great suburb with great potential"

Good suburb with lots of potential. New marina was planned when we left (2014), MONA is just up the road. Only 2 minutes to Glenorchy high street with Northgate shopping centre, and 10 minutes to Hobart CBD. Nicely kept suburb.
Pros
  • Good access to shopping
  • Neat and tidy
  • Close to the city
  • Family friendly
Cons
  • Zoning for a number of large properties does not allow subdivision.

Montrose is located 8 kms north west of Hobart. It is also in Montrose where the Montrose Foreshore Community Park is located. It has a playground which is popular with all the children in the area. There is a trail which runs from there to the Derwent Entertainment Centre. There is a small local shopping centre in Montrose which includes a vet, chemist, petrol station and convenience store.
