Mornington is located around 7 kms north east of Hobart. It is in a beautiful hilly surrounds. It is only a few minutes from the major shopping centre in Rosny Park, which has all you would need and more for all your shopping and entertainment requirements.

The Waverley Flora Park is a great place to explore with the family. There are many good schools in the area making it the perfect place for a family.
