Kangaroo Bluff, originally settled in the 1820s, was the point where people and goods were ferried across the river -- and in 1975-6 ferries again operated after the collapse of the Tasman Bridge. The name Bellerive was adopted in the 1930s. Many fine buildings survive in Bellerive, one of the oldest being the Police Station and Watch House, circa 1842 (now the Community Arts Centre). Queen Street, originally named Bidasso Street, is lined with fine examples of colonial architecture.

A wander around the marina and Bellerive village is a delightful way to spend an hour or so - plenty of cafes to call into for a coffee or a light lunch. The views across the Derwent River to Hobart nestled below Mt Wellington is beautiful.

Bellerive is a lovely waterside suburb centred around Kangaroo Bay and the eastern shore of the Derwent. How much longer it will remain like it is is hard to tell with plans for development under way, a big new apartment block going up in Cambridge Road and talk of a ferry terminal too.

This part of greater Hobart is slowly developing into a great place for experiences in food and wine. Building on experiences like Bellerive Yacht Club and a range of restaurants and hotels it is starting to be an alternative to Constitution Dock to have a walk around and a meal. With new developments coming on line in 2017/18 this will... More

One small 'main' street winds towards Kangaroo Bay and continues around Bellerive Bluff to Bellerive Beach. The 'main' street has cafes and restaurants, a newsagency, real estate agencies and a couple of quirky extras. In a side street is a gym, laundromat, second hand shop and other businesses. There is a historic war memorial, and 19th century buildings scattered around... More

This is a very pretty village located just across from Hobart. Cafes & restaurants with the back drop of Mount Wellington and the marina full of boats. There is a chemist, Bakery,Newsagent and Hotel and beyond that there are no "real" shops, just cafes with good views. Nice destination for lunch or coffee.

In the bustling world that we live in, it isn’t everyday that you get a moment to reflect, take in the cool Tasmanian air and watch the sun go down. The beautifully serene mountains cradle the sapphire sea as the pink sun says it goodbye for the day. It is hard to believe that these beautiful surrounds can be experienced... More
