Devonport

sunset-view-over-devonport Home to around 20,000 people, Devonport is home to some of Tasmania’s best views, including the amazing Cradle Mountain. If you’re a sea fanatic and interested in history then Devonport may interest you with its rich maritime history, with Bass Strait Maritime Centre being the place to go.

If you consider yourself a foodie then this country town is just for you. From dainty cafe fare, to great fish and chips and locally-bred meats, you’ll be full to your hearts content with great food!

Devonport also has great places to explore, one of them being the famous arboretum (tree garden), or if you’re looking for something more calming, how about the Don River Railway steam train?

In this town, from which the Spirit of Tasmania ferry departs for Victoria, homes are selling for about $230,000.

Burnie

Located around Emu Bay on Bass Strait, Burnie is a port city with a rich industrial history. Doesn’t sound appealing? Don’t worry. Since the close of the town's paper pulp mill, Burnie has gone from an industrial town to a vibrant and pumping city.

Burnie is home to roughly 18,000 people, and is not only known for its industrial past, but for being a great place to live for people who enjoy good food and art.

Burnie has a great regional museum where you can learn about how people used to live 100 years ago or, even better, you can visit Hellyers Road Distillery, Australia's largest boutique whisky distillery, and taste the world’s best whisky and some award-winning cheese.

If this sounds like the perfect place for you then don’t be afraid to check out the houses, selling for an average of $260,000.

Kingston

boronia-reserve-tasmania

With a population of 9,760 people, Kingston is on the outskirts of Hobart, only 12km away, and known for being a quiet town. Interesting fact: Kingston used to be called Brown’s River, either after a botanist or a convict (no one knows which).

This little town has so many fun things to see and do, ranging from a blowhole to a heritage museum. Perfect for those that want a countryside feel, homes are selling for an average of $392,000.

Launceston

overlooking-launceston-on-the-tamar-river Known to be one of Australia’s oldest cities, Launceston has some of the most beautiful architecture, which carries a colonial and Victorian theme, and also century-old parks.

With houses selling at $392,000, it could be the place for you if you’re interested in a bustling town with a magnificent history. Having a population of 2,897 Launceston has a great reputation for culture and is home to one of Australia’s largest regional galleries: The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery.

Into football? Why not catch a game of AFL at Aurora Stadium. Into wildlife? Then head on down to Narawntapu National Park. Launceston has something for everybody, whether you’re looking for your first home, to retire or just downsize.
