"Average Joe"

Your average Joe suburb. Though probably one of the nicest in the Glenorchy Municipality. Many of the houses have pretty good views. Close to Moonah, which has become a bit better in recent times. People try to compare moonah to North Hobart, but let's be honest, North Hobart is much much nicer. West Moonah is much more affordable than neighbouring Lenah Valley and New Town, so is becoming a popular option. Quite close to the CBD.
Pros
  • becoming more popular
  • Affordable
  • Quiet (less traffic noise)
  • Sunny, good views
Cons
  • Few cafes, have to go to North Hobart

"Paradise In the Hills"

Living in West Moonah for 2 years now, wouldnt like to live anywhere else..
Beautiful views of water/bush/Mt Wellington, the house blocks are generally very big, lots of trees.
Good bus service - Close to Springfield and Glenorchy bus malls, so you can travel anywhere from thes to transport hubs.
Schools good both private and public.
Great for renovators as Bunnings, K and D, lighting, kitchen, Harvey Norman, numerous tile shops, electrical.. can buy anything or get anything made in Moonah 2 minutes away ..Also many tradespeople live here..
Moonah great for all facilities but to live in West Moonah is like living out of the hub of noise but close to everything Moonah has to offer.
As gentrification continues, many houses are 2 storey to capture the rural, river and Mt Wellington views.
So close to Hobart, West Moonah will continue to rise in property values as people cannot afford Newtown and Lenah Valley.. a GOOD REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT.
Pros
  • Cafe Hub 2 min away in Moonah, increased renovations are making it more like the North Hobart Restaurant Strip
  • Great for renovators - all products and service at your door
  • Affordable
  • Quiet (less traffic noise)
  • Sunny, good views

"Sunny and peaceful"

I've moved from Bellerive to West Moonah 6 months ago and I simply love it! It ended up being much better than I thought. I found it very sunny (which reduce the cost of heating and is more enjoyable when doing gardening), quiet and I feel safe. There is plenty of trees around and the people are pleasant so far.
Pros
  • Sunny, good views
  • Quiet (less traffic noise)
  • Affordable
Cons
  • Few cafes, have to go to North Hobart
  • Can be windy on certain days
  • Mostly old houses

"a great place for shopping and eating out!!"

The bike track is very close and makes walking easy and also great for kids and bikes. There are many playgrounds and green belt areas in West Moonah.
There are many hills in Moonah but the main shopping areas are flat and there are many carparks.

As the old tv advertisments said about Moonah 'You can get it all at Moonah,cos it's right up your street'!
