"Hobart's hidden gem"

We recently moved to Rosny and everyone we talk to says "welcome to Hobart's hidden gem".
Friendly, quiet and convenient are just a few word's that come to mind when trying to sum up Rosny.
It has one of the best primary school's in Hobart! You can walk to Eastlands and Bellerive shopping centre's. Quick and easy drive (or walk) to get into the city. Not to mention has an abundance of sporting facilities such as indoor swimming centre, tennis centre, cricket nets and ovals.
Rosny is mostly overlooked and undervalued! We love it here.

"Rosny is good if you like being alone"

An un-friendly, commuter suburb, with no community spirit, the sewage treatment plant stinks when on cyclepath, the footpaths are either non-existent or lack maintenance.It would be a great suburb for people who drive everywhere and don't like people. I lived in Hobart and I felt safe on the streets and could walk to the shops and talk to neighbours, Rosny is the opposite, you have to drive everywhere no shops or cafes, that is why I left and moved back to civilisation.
Pros
  • has good access to the foreshore
  • decent parks
  • wildlife
Cons
  • No transport
  • must have car
  • not family friendly

maryandh Having lived in Rosny for 30 years I must reply to the above comment. Rosny would be the best suburb in Hobart to live, close to all the amenities and the neighbourhood is very friendly - if you are friendly. We are discerning! I grant that the council can improve some of the pathways - just as other councils can improve their roads and pathways. We are close to the best primary school in the south and Clarence pool - great place to bring young children up. The sewage will now smell on occasions in the summer - but only since Southern Water has taken over, there is something in that. Coastalflower I think you have your blinkers on. I enjoy champers with my neighbour on quite a few occasions but never borrow a bowl of sugar, we don't do that in Rosny!

mlns We are a young couple in our 30's and recently moved to Rosny. In the first week of moving in, our neighbours invited us over for drinks! Which definitely didn't happen in our former locale. Rosny is a beautiful suburb, we have lovely views of the Derwent and also Mt Wellington. There are numerous coastal paths to walk and the streets are tidy.. but I will admit some footpaths could do with a spruce up! It is a very quiet suburb (but who wants noisy!). You can easily walk to Bellerive and Eastlands shopping centre so I don't necessarily think you need a car - I don't have one! You can also walk to one of the best primary school's in Hobart (Montagu Primary). Nearly forgot all the great sporting facilities such as the indoor swimming centre, tennis centre and ovals. Rosny has everything you need. We love it here!
