Tasmania offers really genuine and exceptional lifestyle opportunities for singles, couples or families. Often overlooked in favour of more populated states it rewards in many ways, not least because the average house price in Tasmania is a just a third of median prices ini Sydney and Melbourne. This means you can genuinely secure the house of your dreams without any compromise. As a previous house owner in Sydney I speak with direct experience! 

Other benefits include:

  • Tasmania is home to some of the most spectacular natural attractions and environments in Australia!
  • A gourmet'ss paradise! If you love food and wine, exceptional produce is farmed in Tasmania: fruit, vegetables, cheese etc.
  • Highly livable climate - none of the extreme heat which is getting more common on the mainland. 
  • Great schools - including a rich choice of private institutions.
  • North West Tasmania is a fast growing region, a creative, food and lifestyle hub.
  • Surf, hike, climb, run, kick, cycle, swim, dive, grow (food!)

It's time to take a closer look at Tasmania!









Major metropolitan Aussies were also drawn to the laid back, attractive communities with living costs more then half of Sydney's or Melbourne's. Thousands have moved to 'Tassie' to enjoy no traffic issues, a sensational climate which produces amazing produce and allows amazing lifestyles for families who love the great outdoors.

The North West Tasmania in particular offers all that is good about the island.

This is "feel good" factor is also reflected in its Mental Health Service. It offers Consultant Psychiatrists a supportive and collaborative platform in which to provide mental health care. There is a strong sense of community  and involvement, excellent peer group networks to draw upon, integrated systems, comprehensive professional development and a vast range of clinical services available.
