The place to find your ‘great Australian dream’
While the dream of owning your own home is often out of reach in other Australian states and territories, in Tasmania it is very much alive.
Hobart consistently ranks as having the most affordable house prices of all capital cities in Australia. The latest data shows the median house price in the greater Hobart area to be $440 000, and the mean price for residential dwellings in Tasmania to be $399 600.
However, it’s not just about affordability. It’s all about location, location, location! If you like the idea of being part of a community, living close to nature or the beach, yet still within walking distance or a short commute from the central business district, then there is a place for you in Tasmania.
Across the state there are numerous gems nestled among beautiful countryside, surrounded by stunning scenery, and close to beaches, with plenty of opportunities to snap up your own piece of paradise.
The combination of great urban and suburban living, short commutes, accessible services and schools, green open spaces and parks in our cities and towns, mean the everyday is just easier.
With good access to the rest of Australia via air and sea, and the rollout of high speed broadband, it’s easy to stay connected to friends and family elsewhere.
And there is lots to do. A drive around Tasmania can lead you to wineries, local breweries, historic places, fruit picking, bushwalking, art trails and music festivals.
Tasmania also boasts:
- nationally and internationally recognised cultural and creative events which have a vibrancy and energy like never before
- a reputation as one of the safest places in the world, for both people and property
- a mild, seasonal climate with reliable rainfall, some of the cleanest air in the world and a relaxed pace of life
- natural spaces to discover, offering spectacular landscapes, from highlands carved by glaciers to quiet, solitary beaches; and from cool, silent rainforests to colourful, alpine wilderness wildflowers.
Perhaps it is time to trade your flat for a house and make your next move Tasmania.
