The home of the world-renowned MONA, the Derwent Entertainment Centre, Royal Hobart Showgrounds and all in close proximity to Hobart CBD, there is always something happening in the Northern Suburbs.
Tasmania’s reputable farming and sustainability, along with clean water and rich soil inspire a wide range of fantastic dining experience packed full of local food, wine and beers.
One of the best places for beautiful organic foods, the Hobart and the Greater Hobart region is home to many local markets filled with quality homegrown and homemade wares. Whether browsing the Salamanca Market in Hobart on Saturdays or the countless other regular meets around the areas, you’re bound to find a great deal on quality goods while supporting local stallholders.
Quality Local Wineries
Tasmania is well known for it’s award-winning vineyards and wineries. It is home to many leading producers of premium cool climate wines, such as the Moorilla Estate Winery in Berriedale and Bruny Island Premium Wines from just south of Hobart. On the Eastern Shore is the Coal River Valley winery trail with over 10 prominent vineyards all within close proximity.
Glenorchy City adjoins Hobart City and features residential areas, Northgate shopping centre, several large sporting facilities, Cadbury Chocolate Factory, the Derwent Entertainment Centre and the world-renowned Museum of Old and New Art (MONA).
The Derwent Entertainment Centre was the home of the former NBL team, the Tassie Devils, and is the largest indoor sports and major event venue in Tasmania, regularly seeing many international stage shows and artists performing in the venue.
Arguably Tasmania’s biggest tourism and cultural icon, the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) is situated in Berridale just minutes from Hobart’s CBD. MONA is the largest privately funded museum / art gallery in Australia, and in conjunction with his Mona Foma and Dark MOFO festivals, owner David Walsh has brought new vibrancy and life to the arts culture of Tasmania. With further large developments proceeding on and around the MONA site, and inspiration that has overflowed to public art spaces such as GASP and the MAC, there is great excitement for the future of the arts in the Northern Suburbs, and in the broader community.
Due to its proximity to the City of Hobart, and with a lower median sale price in many suburbs than those elsewhere there is a growing optimism about housing and the value of living in the Northern Suburbs.
