About the neighbourhood
The leafy, riverside suburb of Taroona is located just south of the Hobart CBD and provides a peaceful setting for your stay. Restaurants, beaches, cafés and shops are all close by. There is public transport available within a few metres of the apartment. Nearby you'll find the historic Shot Tower and picturesque access to the Channel district south of Hobart via the old and little-used Channel Highway. This is the ideal location for those wanting to be just a little out of the hustle and bustle of a noisy city but still be within 10 minutes drive of the city centre. Being relatively level and close to the river, Taroona is both a cyclist's paradise and a great area to walk. We have two TREK 7.1 flat-bar road bicycles for those who wish to use them: a 44.5cm mens and a 38cm womens... an...
Getting around
Metro Bus routes 426 and 429 service the area and are usually between 10 and 20 minutes apart depending on the time of day (slightly less frequent on Sundays and public holidays).
