"Little Town Really Going Ahead"

Howden is located 16 kms south west of Hobart. It is on the coastline of North West Bay. It is a small community with no local amenities to speak of. However, the suburbs of Kingston and Margate are able to provide the daily necessities and more. It ajoins the bush giving it a real country feel yet it is only a 30 minute trip into Hobart. It has undergone significant development in the last few years and its community has rapidly grown due to the easier access through the building of new roads and the accompanying housing development.
