"Affordable suburb, now with a winery. Shaking off it's housing commission roots, by converting to private ownership at rapid rate."

We love that our suburb now has a winery! The place is changing so fast- lots of house renovations, and lots of new streets planned through council for brand new homes in Waverley in the coming years. Can't wait to see the suburb blossom even further over the next five years or so. We feel very welcome as a lesbian couple, getting on well with the elderly couple next door one one side & single mother on the other side. We go for walks along Waverley Lake, and 5 minute drive down to Launcestion Aquatic Centre where we go swimming once a week.

"Don't be deceived"

Waverley is definitely NOT for the trendy & stylish or gay couples.
The vast majority of the suburb is housing commission with a lot of houses in a terrible state due to their owners.
Gay people would be run out of town by some of the not so accepting kinds of people that live in the suburb.

The lake also has a scouts shed which is frequently vandalised as are the public toilets at the park.

There is no way known that 'super wealthy' people live here.
Cons
  • A lot of housing commission
  • Bogans

Sami_n_Mel We are happy to be living in Waverley as lesbian couple the last 2 years. We get on well with our neighbours & have noticed more & more dept of housing houses being sold off as private. Having a winery set up operation in our suburb has really made a big change to the area.

"Waverley, a up & coming gem of a suburb in Launceston... and the Gateway to the East Coast !!"

Waverley is a hightly visible suburb on the edge of East Launceston on the way to the East Coast. Waverley has so much naturaly beauty with a stunning sandy-shored fishing lake surrounded by mountain & city views. Waverley also has a rich history with the world famous Waverley Wollen Mills tucked away at the base of top-of-hill suburb. Having said that, the suburb is changing rapidly- it now even has it's own vineyard & winery, and even tourist accomodation!

  • Supermarket, School, Fast food, Service Station
  • Winery, Vineyards, boutique tourist accomodation
