"Little Holland"

Longley is located about 15 kms south west of Hobart. It is surrounded by mountains making it a very scenic area. People enjoy working in Hobart and living in this tranquil setting. It is one of the suburban estates that have developed around the sattelite area of Kingston. The area has a significant Dutch community as many moved here after the war around 1950. There are few local amenities as it is only a short trip into Kingston, which is the commercial hub of the area.
