Had One Very Awesome Meal At This Place Last Night. The Seafood Basket Was Very Yummy. The Crispy Chicken For Entre Was To Die For. Will Be Heading Back Again Soon For More.

Extremely pleasant suburb of Hobart. Impressive Marina. Home to Wrest Point Casino and Hotel. Five minutes drive to CBD.

Had a walk along the front near the convention centre, unfortunately it was still recovering from the floods in March, but great to look over the bay, and plenty to see, worth a nice walk.

Within ten minutes from the Hobart CBD. Beside the Derwent River. Sandy Bay is an upmarket area with the yacht club, Wrest Point Casino, University and a great selection of cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and stores. About 15 mins walk to Salamanca Market and the City....More

A quiet and spacious neighborhood, each house has its own characteristics and aesthetic design. Walking in this neighborhood is a very pleasant experience.

Sandy Bay enjoys beautiful large historic homes with magnificent water side views where many of the rich early settlers are likely to have lived. It is only a 20min walk to Salamanca market/art galleries, docklands and city centre.

I liked the beach near the Sandy Bay. There were several boats enjoying their ride. We could see the town and mountains quite clearly. This was a great hike and we enjoyed it. Wortwhile to see!

Sandy Bay is a great location to stay in Hobart. Close to Salamanca Market, Westpoint Casino & good resturants. Reccomend Vina Cafe opposite Coles for delicious noodles. Nice Thai resturant in same strip.

We travelled to Sandy Bay on our Hop On Hop Off bus tour yesterday, and one of it's prominent landmarks is the famous Wrest Point Casino. This was apparently the first legal casino in Australia.
