DISTANCES: Urban Hobart

There are two major features of the Hobart landscape - the River Derwent and Mount Wellington. From Bellerive these two features can be viewed in their proper perspective, and this is one of the main reasons why it is such a popular residential area.

Bellerive was one of the earliest settlements on the eastern shore and for many years ferries provided the only conventional means of commuting to and from Hobart.

There is an excellent public golf course at Rosny.

The farm buildings at the Rosny Historic Centre adjacent to the Rosny course were part of Hobart’s earliest rural establishment and are still in a rural setting.

Bellerive Bluff contains one of the original forts set up to protect Hobart against expected invasion by the Russians in the late 1800s. It is an example of the style of army fortification of that period.

Bellerive Oval is home to many national and international cricket matches and the Tasmanian Cricket Museum.
