Sandy Bay is a prestigious suburb located 3km south of the Hobart CBD and hosts the majority of the region’s million-dollar homes. It also boasts fantastic infrastructure, including a number of major supermarkets, excellent public and private schools for both boys and girls, great public transport access to Hobart and a vibrant restaurant and shopping strip. Australia’s first casino, Wrest Point, is located in Sandy Bay.
Recent buying activity in Sandy Bay has far outstripped that of its prime suburb peers. One selling point is the University of Tasmania, located on Churchill Avenue, which means there is no shortage of students and academics requiring housing. This adds a rental element to an area that would otherwise be suited more to capital growth investments.
Robbie Yeoland from Key Property Management believes the suburb is clearly divided into two sections: an older style area, which is on the water side and a modern area, situated above the university and Churchill Avenue.
“Sandy Bay Road and Churchill Avenue run parallel to each other,” Yeoland says. “While there is a separation in styles, nearly every property has a water view and all the major players in real estate are in Sandy Bay.”
