Located on the eastern side of Hobart is the increasingly popular suburb of Lindisfarne. Renowned for its friendly neighbourhood feel and diverse lifestyle, it has everything from river views, water sports and bush tracks to convenient transport, shopping and entertainment. All within 10 to 15 minutes’ drive to the CBD.
This riverside suburb is ideal if you enjoy yachting, canoeing, or simply being out on the water. If you prefer your feet firmly on land, you can stroll along the foreshore or admire the panoramic views at the Natone Hill Bushland Reserve. The reserve is perfect for a morning walk with your furry friend or a casual bike ride to blow out some cobwebs.
Better still, Tasmania’s largest shopping centre is just 4km away, and you can jump on an international flight just 15 minutes from your home.
Lindisfarne has a selection of stunning properties, with many overlooking the River Derwent and across to Mount Wellington.
You will find an array of options for families, retirees, first-home buyers and investors. Explore character-filled homes ready for renovation, tidy villas with low-maintenance living, and family homes on large blocks nestled near bushland.
The suburb is also home to retirement villages and senior residential homes, including Queen Victoria Home and Masonic Care Tasmania’s Freemasons Home.
Lindisfarne is known for its strong community and neighbourly spirit. It is mostly made up of older and established couples and families; and older independents. With the number of local retirement villages and residential homes in Lindisfarne, it is unsurprising that 30% of the population is aged 65 years and over.
The majority of your working neighbours will have careers as professionals, office and administration workers; and community and personal services workers.
The Lindisfarne Village is the suburb’s hub of activity. It offers residents all of the everyday needs, including a Woolworths, pharmacy and newsagency. Currency Café and Spencer’s Hobart are favourites among locals for dining out, while the gourmet butcher has you covered for afternoon and evening meals at home.
Join the locals at the Motor Yacht Club, where you can moor your vessel in one of the many berths or relax with a meal while overlooking the River Derwent. Across the river, you will see Simmons Park, a fantastic place for children to play.
Living in Lindisfarne means you will be just a short drive from popular entertainment areas in surrounding suburbs. Tasmania’s largest shopping centre, Eastlands, is the next suburb over. Here you will find over 90 well-known stores, including JB Hi-Fi, Specsavers, Sportsgirl and even Gold Class Village Cinemas. Another five minutes away is Bellerive Quay’s trendy shopping and dining area as well as Blundstone Arena ¬– a premier sporting and entertainment venue.
The family-friendly suburb of Lindisfarne provides some great school options, including Lindisfarne Primary School and St Cuthbert’s Catholic School. The local secondary school is Rose Bay High, a short two to five-minute drive from anywhere in Lindisfarne.
If your preferred school isn’t in Lindisfarne, easy-to-access public transport is a fast and simple way to travel to other suburbs and the CBD each day.
Along the River Derwent’s foreshore lies a recreational area that hosts much of Lindisfarne’s sporting activity. The Lindisfarne Cricket Club, local footy club (Lindisfarne Blues), tennis club and Beltana RSL Bowls Club are all found here. If none of these sports pique your interest, Lindisfarne’s swimming and rowing clubs also offer fantastic opportunities to stay fit and healthy and get know your neighbours.
