Hobart has a much smaller population than cities such as Melbourne and Sydney, and as a result has a much more laid-back, friendly feel and a strong sense of community.
There are several suburbs that each have a distinct feel. From the historic Battery Point and Sandy Bay to Tolmans Hill, all are relatively close to the city, meaning a short commute to work.
Hobart is located on the Derwent River, and Mt Wellington is the backdrop for this city. Some of the things that draw locals and visitors are the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) and the famous Salamanca Markets.
It is a great place to live and provides a gateway to explore Tasmania.
We can. Our pet transport service means we take care of your pet while you get settled. We can move any pet, not just cats and dogs. We assess and create a plan based on your pet's needs.
Your pet arrives at your door, on a date and at a time that suits your needs. We can also provide direct supervision for the whole transport process if you require this.
You can leave all your packing to the professionals, if you like. We have expert teams trained to correctly wrap and pack your belongings so they can be safely transported. We also have the highest quality packaging and right packing materials to protect your valuable and fragile goods. If you would like us to wrap just a few items, we are more than happy to do this for you.
If you choose to self-pack, we can supply specially-designed packing cartons and other packing materials for you. Speak to a moving expert to find out more.
Compared to Darwin's tropical climate, you may find the temperature a bit of a shock at first.
The city has four distinct seasons. The month of January and February are the hottest, and the maximum average temperature is 21 degrees Celsius. It is generally quite dry.
During winter Hobart gets the southerly winds from Antarctica, meaning it has some of the coldest temperatures in Australia. The maximum average temperature is 12.3 degrees Celsius, with overnight temperatures dipping below freezing. Given its altitude, Mount Wellington can receive some snow.
There are so many things you need to take into consideration. From organising utilities, arranging pet transport and even changing your address for what seems like an endless list of services and authorities!
Any move can be overwhelming, but working out how to move to rural Australia can be even harder.
