Placed near the northern end of picturesque parklands forming Queens Domain just 3km from Hobart’s CBD, it is only a 10 minute stroll to the Derwent River, Cornelian Bay waterfront walks and the Intercity Cycleway that links with MONA. There’s a bus at the doorstep that meanders into the Hobart CBD and Swanston Street Playground is only 250m down the road. Newtown Plaza, for all your shopping needs, is only 650m away, the renowned New Town Hill Street Grocer with its fresh produce and gourmet local delights is a 12 minute wander down the road and North Hobart’s cosmopolitan hotpot of eateries are just over a 15 minute stroll from the doorstep. If you’re into biking, you can pop next door and explore the picturesque Queens Domain Park or jump on the nearby Intercity Cycle Way that links Hobart CBD (3km’s away) to MONA (11km up the river). If you have a car, its only five minutes from the CBD where parking is a breeze. From there, everything from and Constitution Dock and the ferry to Mona to historical buildings and Salamanca Markets with vibrant bars, brasseries and fine-dining venues are only a short stroll away. While you’re behind the wheel, Mount Wellington is only a short drive away, it’s where the wilderness meets the city and where the best views over the Derwent and Hobart take centre-stage.
