An Introduction to Tasmania

The beautiful island of Tasmania is positioned just off Australia’s south coast and is known for its parks and reserves, home to vast wildernesses. With incredibly fertile lands, those moving to Tasmania will find a state famous for its delicious food and cuisine, particularly chocolate, wines and cheeses. Moving to Tasmania, you’ll find the famous Tasmanian Devils and a beautiful capital overflowing with culture as well as World Heritage-listed buildings containing the history of Australia’s most notorious convict settlement.

The warmest months of December to March have average highs of 17 to 23 degrees whilst winter months have an average of 3 to 11 degrees. Whilst the capital, Hobart, is Australia’s second-driest city after Adelaide, those moving to the west coast of Tasmania will experience substantially more annual rainfall.

Cost of Living When Moving to Tasmania

If you are thinking of moving to Tasmania, you can expect to find on average lower costs for rent and housing than on the mainland. Short commutes to town centres from many areas also help to keep living costs down. If you are moving to Tasmania from mainland Australia, you may also find that prices for things such as groceries are lower as well as public transport costs. However, depending on where you are moving from, some things such as home utilities may work out as more expensive.

Whilst a number of people who move to Tasmania are able to keep their mainland jobs and work remotely, there are a number of areas in which those moving to the state can find work. The largest employer in Tasmania is the healthcare industry with many roles within this area available.
