    Can someone chat about tasmania?

    I think i need a change of environment for a while, its so bloody muggy where i am at the moment i cant do anything but blob around the place. I might just rent my place out for a while and have a change.
    I know it gets hot in summer down there, but its not constant.
    so whats a good place to go? I went for a holliday a few years ago and bummed around the west coast from bernie to roseberry, lol roseberry was like hanging out in a fish bowl i loved that part of tasmania though.

    whats it like with dogs? can you find rentals that accept dogs easily?

    Tassie certainly looks and sounds like a beautiful place to live.

    Tassie is the best!

    I've lived in NZ, Indonesia (for a little while YUCK) SA and Qld, before coming here.
    The climate is just so mild, Beau. Sure, it gets hot in Summer, but it's a different heat to most of the mainland. There's none of that godawful mugginess like in Qld.
    My boys are so heat sensitive, just cannot cope at all. We spent years on steroid creams for skin rashes, and realised we couldn't live that way - it wasn't living.
    Here, if it gets cold you put on a jumper or a coat. You can't peel off layers till you're nude and walk around town in Qld (well you bloody shouldn't anyway!)

    I'm in Devonport where the Spirits of Tasmania come in. We love it here. The West Coast is wild and remote, great if you're into that sort of thing, I guess.
    The best thing about Tassie is that it changes. From one day to the next, from one season to the next, heck, from one hour to the next! And I embrace change, I hate stagnance.
    Another thing, the lifestyle is so laid back, people on average are so friendly and not in a mad rush to get through life.
    It's not a sea-change, it's a life-change here.
    (And the MIL is a long way away! )

    Rentals are probably a bit cheaper than the mainland, although we are fast atching up over the past few years. Most rentals have dosg. It is only your very expensive executive rentals that usually request no pets, but like anything, depends on the owner, the dog and the landlord.

    I remember hearing about land (acerage) going very very cheap in tas....to get the population up in a certain area. They were encouraging families to take it up, get the school going again etc.....

    Is that still on? or in the past now?

    Still happening in some areas, but only if you want to live in a place like Bullamakanka!

    Those areas are mainly in the West Coast, wild, rugged, where all the mining takes place. If a person wants to live in a tiny, far-flung community then that's great. A lot of people bought land simply to make a profit on in later years. Doesn't always work out that way as councils changed the laws down here regarding shacks and shack-owners unfortunately.

    Petrol was very dear when we came here about 8 years ago. Now it seems it's dearer in Qld?
    D'Port is great Beau, gateway to the Cradle Mountain (awe-inspiring) and everywhere else, but most planes come into Launceston about 50-60 minutes drive away as that is the 2nd major city down here.

    Hobart, then Launceston, then Burnie & Devonport are classified as cities. All else are towns. I personally have rarely seen any scenery as breathtaking however as the East Coast of Tasmania. St Helens, Bicheno, Coles Bay...oh my it's absolutely stunning.
