"Outer Suburb"

Affordable outer suburb of Launceston.Lived hear as a job transfer from Melbourne for 1 year.
A fairly quiet,peaceful place, I enjoyed my time here and found my neighbours very friendly.Most of the housing stock is 50's to 60's style weatherboards with an average price of $250000.Shopping is available in Launceston central which is only a 10 minute drive or Centro Meadow Mews which is a 5 minute drive(nothing is very far away in Launceston) Would I recommend it?Depends.If you like the quiet life and very cold winters you might find it very convivial. If,on the other hand,you like socialising and going out you would probably find it fairly dull.Like I said ,I enjoyed my time here but I probably wouldn't contemplate permanently moving to Tassie
