Conveniently located approximately 15kms from the heart of Hobart, residents find the famous Salamanca Place is their happy hunting ground for morning and afternoon tea trips, gift buying, gallery visits and casual walks around the pier. For day-to-day needs, Claremont Village Shopping Centre is just a short stroll away with everything from a post office to a supermarket. Every Monday and Thursday the village bus travels to the local shopping centres and every Wednesday, to the centre of Hobart. There are leisure activities nearby too; within close radius are a bowling club, Claremont Golf Club and the local tennis courts (for those who still enjoy a hit). In this perfect setting, friendships flourish over shared activities and life is enjoyed at a relaxed pace.
