About our home

We have a large home with 3 double bedrooms. There is a balcony along the northern side of the house which looks across the river towards the Cadbury factory and MONA. There is a BBQ deck outside. We have two bicycles; a small car and a people mover. The north facing aspect means the sun passively heats the house all day. There is a modern kitchen with dishwasher.


More about us

  1. Dawn is a geologist who now makes maps for mining companies and environmental consultancy firms. She also teaches Spatial Science to adult learners through the TAFE system. Glenn is a painter and decorator by trade who has taught in the TAFE system for more than 20 years. Since moving to Tasmania 10 years ago he has been teaching people to ride motorbikes.

  2. Both Dawn and Glenn have maxi scooters and push bikes. Glenn has multiple motorbikes too!

  3. Dawn loves bushwalking, cycling and swimming. We love travelling both overseas and in Australia. Our home was listed on another home exchange site for 5 years and we have had many successful exchanges. Sadly that company has changed the way it does things and we are not comfortable with their new direction.

Where is it?


Montrose is an older suburb of Hobart perched high on the southern shore of the Derwent River. It is a 15 minute drive to the heart of Hobart, but only 5 minutes to the local shopping centre at Glenorchy.
There is an intercity bike track which runs from Hobart Cenotaph to Granton alongside the rail track - great for bike lovers.
Every Saturday there is the famous Salamanca market in town with crafts and produce for sale at very competitive prices. On Sunday morning the Farmers Market is held with fresh fruit and vegetables plus Tasmanian made food and wine for sale.
North Hobart restaurant strip is 10 minutes drive for those who don't want to cook every night of the week.
The MONA museum can be seen from the balcony and TMAG (The Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery) is in town. Port Arthur Historic site is 90 minutes drive away and Richmond Historic village is just an hour away.
Mt Field National Park is 90 minutes away with its alpine ski fields - although Mt Wellington also gets snow on it at any time of year and that is only 30 minutes drive to the summit!
