"Paradise by the Sea"

Montagu Bay is located 3 kms north east of Hobart. It is on the east bank of the Derwent River. It was one of the first places on the eastern bank of the Derwent River to be settled in the early 1820's. Both the Hobart Bridge and the Tasman Bridge assisted in the developement of the area. Montagu Bay has both a boat ramp and a jetty from which is launch numerous power and sail boats. These boats can be seen filling the bay any day of the week. It also has beautiful views of Mount Wellington, the Derwent River and the Tasman Bridge. It has its own local primary school and great sporting facilities including the two large cricket grounds, the eastern shore cycle path, the Clarence Sports Centre and an Olympic swimming pool. There are a few local shops but most residents shop in Nearby Rosny Park at the Eastlands Shopping Centre. The Tasmanian SES has a base here due to the closeness of the Tasman Bridge and its history. It is a great place to raise a family.
