"One of Tasmania's premier towns in which to live."

Ideally located within half an hours drive from both Launceston & Devonport & also being the gateway to the internationally acclaimed Cradle mountain & the highland lakes , Deloraine is an outstanding place in which to live.
Like much of Tasmania , it is steeped in history.
The housing ranges from 1830's cottages , Federation homes & quality contempary housing to impressive Georgian & Victorian 2 storey homes with prices ranging from the high $100,000's to the $2 million Italianate mansion 'Tahara'.......not forgetting some of the most sort after dairy & farming homesteads within Tasmania. Almost all budgets & tastes are catered for.
With the sceneic Meander valley river passing through the centre of the township & Deloraine's 'suspension bridge' & large parks ...... it really does have much to offer in regards to scenery , a relaxed lifestyle & extremely safe place in which to live.
With the back drop of the western tiers , which are snow capped in winter, very few would not appreciate the scenery & ambience that Deloraine has to offer.
Holiday accommodation is also well catered for with a riverside caravan park, hotels & motels, lake side cabins & Georgian B & B's , once again almost all budgets & tastes are catered for.

With numerous services available within Deloraine , including Hospital , major supermarket, primary & high schools , hardware , antiques & art gallery's, doctors etc most of ones needs are catered for within the towns boundarys.
Known as one of Tasmania's most friendly towns , it is a very casual & welcoming town which has enjoyed a considerable number of new arrivals in recent years from various states of Australia now calling Deloraine home.
Once being the home to one of Tasmania's most loved & revered men , Joseph Lyons also is still to this day the only Tasmanian to obtain the highest office within Australia....... becoming Prime Minister of Australia during the 1930's. With his wife not only becoming Australia first female parlimentarian , she also greatly assisted the young countries population growth by bearing 12 children. Joe Lyons is still regarded ,to this day , by many historians as Australia's most beloved & respected Prime Ministers to have ever held office.
Being well within commuting distance to Launceston & other areas of considerable interest, its safe enviroment , sceneic beauty & its welcoming locals Deloraine is not only one of Tasmania's best townships in which to live , it is also expected to have considerable growth in the coming years.
