"Great Place to Retire"

Rose Bay is located 4 kms north east of Hobart. It is essentially a residential area with no real local shops. There are two shopping centres close by at both Lindisfarne and Rosny Park. It is a picturesque area with views of both the Tasman Bridge and the Derwent River. The only local school is the state high school. But primary schools are only a couple of kms away. It is a lovely area for young families to grow and spend time together alongside their grandparents. Enjoy some fishing. Drop a line into the quiet waters of Rose Bay and you may be surprised to catch a bream. But even if you don't it is a relaxing way to spend an afternoon as you watch the world go by.
