Newstead is an area which seems to be getting more and more popular - and it is easy to see why! Firstly, it is really close to the city - less than 5 minutes by car and you can walk to town in 20 minutes or less from some areas of Newstead.

It also has a shopping precinct that keeps growing, so you dont even really need to go into the city. From Woolworths and boutique gift shops to award winning hair dressers, popular restaurants, a newsagency and a bakery - it is all there.

The suburb has a mix of old Launceston homes (many of which have been updated/renovated) and there have been some new areas open up that have brand new homes (Elphinwood as one example). There are a really good mix of good public schools and private schools in the area which makes it great for families and couples also seem to be drawn to the area due to all it has to offer.
