Hi, we are moving to Hobart in July with two kids (6 &2).  We want to live in an area where it's safe for kids to play on streets (or walk to nearby beaches, parks, friends, woods etc.).  I don't intend to let them loose in any dangerous areas obviously, but especially our older daughter starts to want to be a lot more independent in going to friends' houses or buy milk in a shop on her own etc.  (we've been known to secretly follow her,  but she is very good, really).  

I am also looking for an area where kids meet each other in open spaces like play grounds or parks, if possible under their own steam.  And where it's quite common to drop round unannounced to friends' places?

Are there such areas?  Any suggestions?

Thanks!!!

Hi original.gif
If I were to move to Hobart, it would be in the Kinston/Blackmans Bay area for sure. My best friend lives there and I love it there. The beach is gorgeous there and there is everything you need in Kingston without having to head into the city - even though the city isn't far away.

I can't vouch for every single street there or what people in any streets are like, as I don't live there.

Good luck with your move original.gif
