"Gateway to the Natural Beauty of the South"

Kingston is located 12 kms south west of Hobart. It is one of the greatest growth areas in the whole of Tasmania. It is considered to be the gateway to the spectacular natural beauty of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel region. Even though there are plenty of employment opportunities in the area most people still enjoy working in Hobart but living in this tranquil setting. It has a large Dutch community which immigrated in the 1950's. It is a thriving community with two major shopping centres, a golf course, many schools, the Australian Antarctic Division Head Office and a large sporting centre. It is the perfect place for a family to enjoy the outdoors and plenty of sporting pursuits.
