    Default Moving from WA to Tasmania

You'll get a very nice place outside the city for that!). East Coast is lovely (but can be a little remote from schools/hospitals). As a previous poster said, be prepared for the weather. Have you visited Tasmania before?

    The only other thing to note is that at the moment there is no direct flight from Hobart to Perth, your dh would have to fly via melbourne or syndey. It can make flying to Perth a whole day event which does suck.

    I'm happy to answer any specific questions about areas/schools etc! It is beautiful here and really the job situation is not as bad as it's made out (in Hobart anyway).
    He’s ok with a stopover in Melbourne, I just spoke to him and he said it’s a small price to pay for privacy and a better lifestyle. He wasn’t aware there isn’t a direct flight, he flew there from Melbourne last time when he was visiting family and I assume he just thought you could fly direct from Perth. He loves Tasmania. I haven’t been, my best friend did the drive over this Christmas with her 4 kids and hubby and was raving about it. DH and I will go for a weeks holiday in August so I can see some places too.

    So far he has said he likes Penna, Cooee and St Helens.

    Do you often see snow? I’ve only seen snow once in mount Buller and I’m 41 years old! I really do love summer, the warm weather. I guess I’ll have to suck it up and adapt.

    Great idea to come visit! Especially in August, it will give you a nice taste of the weather 😂.

    It really depends on where you live if you will see snow. Living in Hobart you often see snow on the mountain in winter but it doesn't fall/settle in the majority of residentail areas. I doubt it ever snows in St Helens or Cooee - too close to the coast. Not sure about Penna, it might see snow in the inland areas once in a while!

    Personally my pick would be Penna, if only for the convenience of being close to the capital city and all the amenities that are there (including the main airport which would be good for your dh). But that said the North West and East Coast are both beautiful! Cooee would probably be the least expensive in terms of housing.

    I should add that it would usually be a quick drive to see snow in winter (max an hour or two) if it doesn't snow where you live!

    The weather isn't that bad... just make sure where ever you live has good heating!

    If you like a state 50 years behind. My advice - bring your current insurance company with you if at all possible.
