New Town & Surrounds
Assemblage Boutique Art Bed and Breakfast acknowledges the Tasmanian Aboriginal people as the first inhabitants of this state and the traditional custodians of the lands where we live, learn and work.
Where are we?
Assemblage Boutique Art Bed and Breakfast is located at 176 New Town Road, New Town. New Town Road, known as the Main Road is a continuation of Elizabet Street which begins in Hobart city. Travelling to the Elizabeth Street Mall is five minutes by car, fifteen minutes by bus or a leisurely half hour walk. Buses pass by every ten minutes and the bike track, which is a short distance away takes a scenic route around the Queen’s Domain and Botanical Gardens to the city. Heading North the bike track will take you to MONA. Bicycles are available for guests to use.
New Town is a very old inner-city suburb with interesting cottages and grand old buildings. For history buffs, Runnymede National Trust property is nearby and the Queens Orphan School is now the Kick Start Arts Centre on the old St Johns Park site. Adjacent to the Post Office is the Church Antiques. Cornelian Bay with its quaint, colourful boat sheds is a leisurely walk from Assemblage, where there are walking tracks around the shore of the Derwent River. For those seeking nature, bush walking is close by in Lenah Valley.
