Suburb Overview

Sandy Bay is a suburb of the city of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, located immediately south of the central business district.

The suburb is home to many large homes, and adjoins the waterfront Salamanca area and Battery Point. The suburb is known as one of the city's prestigious areas. It is also the site of the Hobart campus of the University of Tasmania, Fahan School, The Hutchins School, and Mount Carmel College, Sandy Bay. There is considerable diversity within the suburb. The area surrounding the University of Tasmania is home to much student accommodation. However, the lower areas of Sandy Bay, which are close to the water, are home to Tasmania's most expensive real estate.

Sandy Bay is accessible via Sandy Bay Road, which runs from Davey Street in the city all the way to the Kingborough municipal boundary at Taroona where it becomes the Channel Highway. Before the construction of the Southern Outlet, the road was the primary route to and from Kingston. It is also accessible via Regent Street, which bypasses the shopping district and goes direct to the University and Lower Sandy Bay.

Australia's first legal casino, Wrest Point Hotel Casino, was opened in 1973 at the site of the former Wrest Point Riviera hotel.

A former notable resident of Sandy Bay was Australian film actor Errol Flynn. Sandy Bay is bounded by the Derwent River, and the main beach is Nutgrove Beach.

Sandy Bay Post Office opened on 22 April 1852. It was named Queenborough between 1859 and 1878. In the south of the suburb a Lower Sandy Bay office opened in 1885. It was renamed Sandy Bay Lower in 1895, Beachside in 1921 and Sandy Bay Lower in 1968.

At the ABS 2006 census, Sandy Bay had a population of 11,332 people. This was an increase of 453 people from the 2001 census.

Sandy Bay residents had a median age of 38, compared to the Hobart median of 39. Median individual incomes in Sandy Bay were above average for the region

There is considerable diversity within the suburb. One of Sandy Bay's census collection districts, based around the University of Tasmania and representing 1,131 people or 10% of the population, has a median age of 23 and an average income of $218, with almost three-quarters of the population in some form of education. Over 20% of the district's population is from Malaysia or China, compared to 5.7% in the suburb generally. At the other end of the scale, 59% of the suburb's population live in CCDs with median incomes above $500, with some significantly above this, especially in the Lower Sandy Bay district.

The most popular religious affiliations in descending order in the 2006 census were Anglican, no religion, Roman Catholic, Uniting and Buddhism. Parishes for the Anglican and Catholic churches have existed in the suburb since 1922 and 1934 respectively.
