"The up and coming suburb"

Sorell is a great up and coming town..
With all the recent renevations and new facilites, there is plenty of variety and everything you need within walking distance. Why would you want to live anywhere else? It is a lovely safe and quiet suburb great for families, with the school loacted just out of the centre of the town going from pre-school to Grade 10. There are plenty of employment oppertunities ranging from the young people just starting out right through to people looking for serious employment. Sorell is the perfect suburb for a small family and very affordable. With Seven Mile Beach located only a 5 minute drive away, and Carlton and Park beach only about 10 minutes drive.
Some of the new facilities include:
Zap Gym.
Chemist Warehouse.
Coles Supermarket.
Telstra Shop.
and plenty more with Target Country constructin underway soon.

"An exciting town!"

Sorell is great because existing there is like being transported back in time 50 or so years, where the charming value of "she'll be right" is still alive and practised unselfconsciously by the quaint and folksy local councillors. Some outsiders have described Sorell as a white-bread hick-town and most there would proudly and full heartedly agree with that description. Others have described the town as having only outdated and naive aspirations for the municipality but I think it would be better described as charmingly myopic and bereft of any modern cultural influences.

A safe place to bring up children with little danger of exposure to the disturbing influences of modern multicultural society to found a mere 20 minutes drive south of Sorell.

Highly recommended!

acky TRUCKIE not so sure what you mean by white bread hick town and your coment about multicultural society,are you suggesting that sorell is a racist redneck town?i am interested to here your oppinions,i have lived in the NT for the last 39 years and have enjoyed living in a society where a person is as good as the next unless they prove otherwise,having been born in tas i now think its time to come home so now looking to buy in tas,truckie maybe i have missunderstood you if so i will apologize in advance,sorell looks like a great place to live.
CoastalDelights shame no answer came regarding this comment because I have no idea what is meant by a white-bread hick-town other than we have but, another disgusting "white" racist proclaiming superiority over other cultures ... Sad, sad, sad indeed to put out there that people within this community are of such bad taste. We are a culture embracing community and I for one will ensure that we continue to stay this way. I love this little "but very rapidly growing" town... I love its egalitarian culture, where we all just blend, elderly, solo parents, singles, couples and young families... from all walks of life and varying nationalities .... Sorell Is a beautiful place to live .. :-)
