Our home is just 2 minutes walk from a beautiful beach and river setting and a 40km bicycle path runs past our back door. A new aquatic centre and gym are a 10 minute walk along the bike path. We have excellent kayaks and bicycles for use.
We have a four bedroom, 2 bathroom home. Three rooms have queen beds the other we use as an office, but can be used as a single bedroom. The forth bedroom also comes with en-suite and small kitchenette. There is a very spacious weatherproof indoor/outdoor entertaining area. We have a gymnasium with wide range of equipment.
Our modest home is a short walk from the town centre of Devonport, yet it is a quiet location. The house is easy to live in and close to an excellent supermarket, a good range of shops, library and facilities, eateries, and pubs.
Our car is a 5 speed manual Mitsubishi Lancer and has a Tasmanian Parks pass paid for.
The Northern part of Tasmania has such world-wide attractions as Wineglass Bay and Cradle Mountain. It is a bushwalkers paradise with beautiful beaches in summer and snow in winter.
We would love to swap Europe anytime and Australia as we are both retired. We are keen travellers and are prepared to look at any and all offers overseas and Australia.
