Georgiana Street
25th May 2020

"Lifestyle Plus"

Georgiana Street has lots to offer - close to Splash Aquatic Centre and the Don Walking Tracks. There are lots of newer houses in the street and some houses and blocks have views of the Don hills.
Great spot to live if you have an active lifestyle.

Shearwater
25th May 2020

"Great Little Place"

Some of the best beaches in Tasmania for swimming and beach combing. Shearwater offers alot. Some houses have views, some have small yards and all are close to the walking/bike tracks that go from Hawley to Port Sorell, awesome for families or a Sunday stroll.
With the Woolworths shopping complex and an IGA in the village centre at Shearwater along with a heap of other stores and some great cafes in the area this beachside neighbourhood really does have it all. The local community has recently revamped the Shearwater Village and it looks fabulous - a real credit to the volunteers.
There is a Primary School and buses for the local High Schools and a medical centre as well, along with a golf club and country club.

Acacia Hills
25th May 2020

"Couple of Acres and Just out of Town"

Acacia Hills is actually a pretty big area between Spreyton and Lower Barrington. Most blocks are larger with many 'couple of acres' options available for a family lifestyle just out of town. There is school buses to Spreyton and Devonport and also to Sheffield.
The hills literally glow with yellow blossoms in Spring.

Port Sorell
25th May 2020

"Beachside Living with Charm"

Some of the best beaches in Tasmania for swimming and beach combing. I spent many years here growing up and spending hours and hours on the safe beaches and 'hanging out' at the old Jetty. The jetty might now be a floating pontoon, but muddy creek hasn't changed a bit - there is still old school charm to be found in Port Sorell
The walking/bike tracks from Hawley to Port Sorell are flat and easy going and are awesome for families or a Sunday stroll.
With the Woolworths shopping complex and an IGA in the village centre at Shearwater along with a heap of other stores and some great cafes in the area this beachside neighbourhood really does have it all. With a mix of old and new and some land to build on, you can create a great lifestyle here.
There is a Primary School and buses for the local High Schools, making Port Sorell a great place for families, I loved growing up here.

Miandetta
25th May 2020

"Mighty Miandetta"

Miandetta is minutes from the Devonport City Centre and has a great little cafe called Brown Bear Eatery that is very popular with locals. There is lots of parks in the area and a primary school making it a great place for families.
A couple of streets are close to the Bass Highway which is great for commuting, don't let that cloud your opinion of Miandetta overall, there are some really lovely quiet streets and some even have views. I have lived in a house that is pretty much next to the Bass Highway and I didn't notice the traffic too much after a few days, the benefits of being close for commuting far outweighed the traffic noise.

Latrobe
25th May 2020

"Small Town with Lots to Offer"

Latrobe is great. Often busy it still has a small community 'vibe'. The streetscape has retained it's historic charm and a Sunday wouldn't be complete in Latrobe without a trip to the local market, a browse in Reliquaire (if you haven't been here you must), morning tea at a cafe or at Anvers Chocolate Factory. There is no parking fees in Latrobe and the Hill St Grocer and Ritchie's IGA will have your weekly grocery shop sorted. Latrobe boasts a butcher, bakeries, boutiques, a bank (imagine that - a small town bank) and other banking services, a medical practice and is of course home to the Mersey Community Hospital. There is Primary School options and a High School catering for up to year 12 which has had recent upgrades.
If you're keen for sport then Latrobe has that sorted - plus the Latrobe Federal Band is the longest running brass band in the country.
The river is picturesque and whilst it did flood a few years ago the council has committed to flood mitigation to minimise the risk in the future.
With a mix of old and new, the housing options are plenty and the demographic is a good mix.

"Devonport - It's Changed and Changing"

Where else can you buy affordable housing (relative to some other regions) and be minutes from the beach, river, awesome walking tracks, great cafes serving not only good coffee but tasty and inviting menus. The Spirit of Tasmania is right on our doorstep as is the Devonport Airport so commuting is a breeze.
There is a cinema, top class Entertainment centre, major shops, boutiques, plenty of choice for supermarkets and smaller stores and a load of entertainment options. There is plenty of Community groups and things to get involved in too.
Jump in the car and drive less than a couple of hours and you are in the mountains or Launceston to get your shopping fix if Devonport doesn't satisfy and at the end of the day you can come home to Devonport where living is pretty easy.
There is wineries and distilleries and so many food options close by that people travel Interstate for and we have it right here.
Devonport is not perfect, but there has been a real change in recent years, check it out, you might be surprised by what is going on in the Living City.

Eugene St
25th May 2020

"Close to the Beaches and Sports Clubs - Minutes To Town"

If living just minutes from the the Bluff and being able to walk to the beach where you can swim, surf, paddle board, have an awesome fine dining meal at Mrs Jones, grab a take away burger and some of the best chips in town at Drift, join an active surf club, play hockey, tennis, touch football, watch your kids play Saturday morning soccer or work off some energy at the beachside playground, land a few tricks at the skate bowl, run, stroll or bike ride for miles on the coastal and river walking path, grab your morning coffee and paper from the Meercroft Corner Store and be just minutes from the centre of town sounds like a winner - then Eugene Street is for you. One of the only downsides is the train line, but hey...Devonport is a port city and you get used to it - there really isn't that many trains per day.
Just a tip - you can get to Eugene St W (sometimes known as West Eugene St) from Eugene St

Hawley Beach
25th May 2020

"Beachside Living with all the Convenience - Great for Families"

Some of the best beaches in Tasmania for swimming and beach combing. I spent many years here growing up and spending hours and hours on the safe beaches. Even in winter it's beautiful.
The walking/bike tracks from Hawley to Port Sorell are flat and easy going and are awesome for families or a Sunday stroll.
With the Woolworths shopping complex and an IGA in the village centre at Shearwater along with a heap of other stores and some great cafes in the area this beachside neighbourhood really does have it all.
Some of the houses in Hawley are directly opposite the beach or a short walk to the beach and the views are amazing.
There is a Primary School and buses for the local High Schools, making Hawley Beach a great place for families, I loved growing up here.

Bakers Beach
25th May 2020

"Coastal Lifestyle away from any Hustle and Bustle"

Surrounded by natural bush, a short drive to the Narawantapu National Park and close to the Rubicon Estuary, Bakers Beach is the place to live if you like the quiet life and don't mind at least a 30 minute drive back to 'the shops'
You can kayak, canoe, boat, fish, swim, bushwalk, beach comb - all the good things that living on an estuary and close to an incredible beach offers, I guess you could even surf if the weather was right. There are also plenty of people that use the nearby forests for activities that involve motors, but you can't hear that from the main neighbourhood. ;)
The community has a very active and well supported volunteer fire brigade with social events planned throughout the year - but if you want to keep to yourself then that is AOK.
Once Bakers Beach gets into your system it's hard to let go and most residents have been there for quite some time - if you get the chance to experience this lifestyle, grab it with both hands. Most houses have been built with loads of character, some have direct access to the Estuary or Browns Creek and are on a 'couple of acres'.
