Surburb overview

If you fancy living in a small town with lovely Georgian and Victorian houses and manicured lawns, then the sleepy town of Perth in Tasmania may just be the right destination for your home-buying endeavor. Located south of the famed city of Launceston, Perth was registered as a suburb in the 1800s, bringing forth a period of modest growth to the humble town. Today, Perth’s heritage buildings still remain, but new infrastructure could pave the way for the introduction of new housing estates and potentially a lifestyle hub in the city.

The total population of Perth is 2,237, with a median age of 37. Perth has a diverse community consisting of Australia-born residents and migrants from Germany, Netherlands, Philippines, Scotland, New Zealand, Estonia and Japan.

Real estate overview

Latest data show that Tasmania as a whole is benefiting from surging interest among vacationers, both here and from overseas. The migration rate has also increased by 9 per cent, with deep-pocketed buyers snatching up heritage homes in coastal areas and small historic towns. Some are eyeing towns such as Perth for their laid-back lifestyle and are opting to sell their homes in bigger cities to settle in Darwin for a fraction of the price.

It’s only in Perth, Tasmania where you can find well-maintained properties for sale in Federation-style architecture selling between $300,000 and $400,000. Off-the-plan housing and land packages are also on offer for buyers.

Tourism

Perth has a number of places for tourists and residents to fill their day. The town has no less than 40 heritage-listed buildings as well as historic drinking dens and hotels that were established back in the 1800s. The Perth Baptist Tabernacle is a notable structure in the area frequented by tourists, and so is Gibbet Hill, a site where a notorious criminal was executed in the 1800s.
