"Fabulous location with great views."

Otago is one of the best kept secrets on the eastern shore of Hobart. Fantastic views to Mount Wellington, as well as up and down the Derwent river, and you can view the Bowen and Tasman Bridges as part of that view. MONA art gallery, Derwent Entertainment Centre and the Hobart Racecourse is all viewable across the river and it’s an easy drive to the city of Hobart.
Most properties have a couple of acres or have much more land than your average Hobart block.
Great lifestyle suburb for a family or retirees.

"Life on the River"

Otago is located on the Derwent River 10 kms to the north west of Hobart. It is an idyllic setting for a weekend break. It is close enough to the city for easy commuting. Being on the river it provides the tranquil lifestyle which only waterfront living can. It is the perfect place to raise a family.
