Outside The Box Accommodation - Hobart Tasmania Australia

Sunny and surrounded by bush on Mt Nelson with great views of kunyani/Mt Wellington and down the coast to Kingston, Outside The Box Accommodation (OTB) is 10 minutes from the centre of Hobart and
the University of Tasmania and 2 minutes walk to public transport into town via the University.

This architect-designed and meticulously renovated property sits on 3.5 acres of bushland and extensive garden beds. The property is on two levels and includes exclusive use of a balcony, small lawn area and native-plant rockery along with access to the surrounding bushland and tennis court.

It features open plan living and dining, a fully equipped kitchen, 1 x queen bedroom, 1 x double day bed available in living space if required, a study nook with desk and fast internet connection and WiFi, a full bathroom and laundry facilities.

Outside The Box Accommodation is jointly owned by two couples with shared aims to promote social justice, environmental protection, the arts and the interaction of all of these areas. We have established a non-profit association, Outside the Box - Earth Arts Rights Inc, to help further these aims, both within our own lifetimes, and beyond. Our long-term dream is to secure this property in perpetuity so people can continue to explore and promote ways to act fairly, tread lightly and live creatively. All profits from Outside The Box Accommodation are used to support Earth, Arts, Rights projects. We would love to welcome you to our place and feel sure that you will enjoy your visit with us.

About Me
We are four self-employed people. We work in graphic design, environment, disability access and human rights law. We love living in this beautiful bush setting, close to the Hobart CBD, with its vibrant arts, environment and human rights communities. Outside our windows are views of kunanyi/Mt Wellington, friendly and curious wildlife visit every day (and night!), and you can harvest seasonal organic produce from our extensive patch. There is a local bus route that takes you into town or to the University of Tasmania (just 4km down the hill), easy access to MONA (Museum Of Old And New Art) and the city's ever growing range of wonderful cafes and restaurants, craft breweries and vineyards, artist-run-initiatives, farmer's market and the artisan shopping precinct of Salamanca. Tasmania's Western Wilderness World Heritage Area is short drive away, and for a weekend trip Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park is a must. We love our island home and welcome the opportunity to share it with you all year round.
