About the neighbourhood
Our properties are surrounded by parkland. On or adjacent to our them are swimming in the Derwent, fishing, boating or just walking in the parks. If you bring a bike or canoe you can use them! If not use ours! The Derwent provides opportunities for white water canoeing or jetboating further upstream from the historic town of New Norfolk which is 15 minutes away or enjoy a more relaxing time playing golf or bowling at local clubs. Moorilla, MONA, Richmond, Salmon Ponds and Bonorong Wildlife Park are all family favourites and close by. There is an RSL, golfing and bowling clubs less than a couple of km away.
Getting around
Tasmania is endowed with every activity possible from jetboating to skiing, from mountain climbing to some of the best walking in the world. Snorkelling or surfing, fishing or just snoozing on a beach are all within an hour or so of Derwent Vista. For those who like dining, nightclubing or gambling, Hobart's inner suburbs of North Hobart and Salamanca are just a 15 minute drive away and Australia's first licensed casino, Wrest Point is just a 20 minute drive away. Salamanca market is a must on Saturday, MONA and Moorilla winery is very close to spend the afternoon listening to jazz and tasting their wares. If history and old buildings are your interest, Richmond is only 35 minutes away.
