Suburb Overview

New Town is a suburb of the city of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia about 4 km north of the central business district of Hobart. One of the city's oldest suburbs, it is now an inner city residential suburb. Many of its streets are lined with Federation style cottages. It is surrounded by the suburbs of North Hobart, Mount Stuart, Lenah Valley and Moonah, with the Queen's Domain just to the south-east.

At the time of Hobart's re-settlement on the western shore of the Derwent River in 1804, the first free settlers were landed at New Town Bay a day after the military and convict landing on Hunter Island on 20/21 February. Some early buildings remain including Pitt Farm which is the second oldest farmhouse in Australia.

New Town has the only two single-sex public schools in Tasmania - Ogilvie High School, for girls, and New Town High School for boys. There is also a third main school in New Town, which is the Catholic, Sacred Heart College, New Town Campus having in excess of over 1000 students. New Town Primary School is over a hundred years old. The major shopping centre is Centro New Town Plaza, which houses a Kmart, a Coles Supermarket and several smaller specialty shops.

New Town is well known for its beautiful leafy streets flanked by Colonial, Georgian, Federation, Italianate and Art Deco residences, with many lovely large homes and mansions scattered throughout the suburb. Architects that have worked on New Town homes include Thomas Reibey Atkinson, grandson of Mary Reibey, and Henry Hunter, one of Hobart's most prominent early colonial architects.

The Hobart bike track passes directly through the suburb, on its course from Claremont to the city.

In the 1990s, New Town saw a large increase in the number of Sudanese refugees living in the area.

The main road in New Town is known as "New Town Road" and follows on from Elizabeth Street in Hobart. The road connects Hobart with the neighbouring city of Glenorchy. Other main roads in New Town are Augusta Road, which leads into Lenah Valley, and Giblin Street which becomes Forster Street, continuing down to the Brooker Highway.
