Living in Tasmania

Tasmania is a remarkably liveable place offering rewarding career opportunities, an inspiring lifestyle and vibrant, welcoming communities. Balancing work, family life and recreation is easier in small cities with affordable housing, great schools and short commute times. Traffic in Tasmania is lighter than most places, with peak hour in the cities of Hobart (population 220 000), Launceston (130 000), Burnie (19 900) and Devonport (25 500) brief and commuting usually takes less than 20 minutes.
