"Amazing suburb"

We moved to Tolmans Hill in 2015, having lived in a number of places within Hobart and interstate. This is by far the best place I have lived. The views are mind blowing, it's peaceful and relaxing up on the hill and the neighbours are fantastic, even organising family friendly street parties. Being only 5km from the city means everything you need is never far away. Couldn't rate this place highly enough.
Pros
  • Close proximity to CBD
  • Green and clean
  • Views are outstanding

"The best place to live in Tasmania"

We love living in Tolmans Hill! It is so close to the CBD and excellent schools for both boys and girls. It is only 5kms from the CBD but full of trees and with amazing views of the river and beyond. We have abundant birdlife here with robins, blue wrens and much more. We also have lots of kangaroos!

It is safe well lit and our children love to play in the street with the other neighbourhood children. The residents are all super friendly and the houses and gardens are well presented and well maintained. This has been the best place we have ever lived in terms of community spirit and convenience to everything.
