About New Town:
New Town is one of Hobart's oldest suburbs and the quiet streets are lined with Federation style cottages. Two bikes (as pictured) are available for your use - choose to cycle North along the cycleway toward MONA (7.5kms/26min ride) or South along the riverfront to the city and Hobart waterfront (5.2kms/19min ride).
If you would prefer to walk, you can reach the lovely Cornelian Bay parklands in 10 minutes, or venture further along the river to the Botanical Gardens and beyond to the Queens Domain parklands with its extensive walking and biking tracks.
Toward the New Town precinct and less than 10 minutes walk away you will find the iconic Jackman and McRoss bakery brimming with delicious baked goods to enjoy with a fresh coffee. 7 minutes walk away is larger shopping centre which includes a postoffice, bottle shop, chemist and Coles supermarket.
There is a bus stop directly across the road from our place which travels in either direction toward MONA and the Northern suburbs, or the city and Hobart waterfront. We will provide a bus timetable for your use.
There are two bikes, with helmets and baskets available for guest use.
