RachelLana. :

I want to move their but i dontt want to live near Hobart, i'm thinking the northwest coast!? Any suggestions?

Ivanhoe Fats :
"Melbourne :D"
Oh great 1 :
"it really depends on what you want and what skills you have, the NW coast is having a boom at the moment and jobs are pretty reasonable depending on your skills. However any where that you choose your going to love so come on you will love this state we do."
tentofield :
"It depends what you will be doing there. Hobart is a delightful city and much much drier than the northwest coast. The Channel country and Huon valley south of Hobart are magnificent. The east coast has much to offer as does Launceston - and nowhere is really far from anywhere else. If, however, you really like rain and have a good umbrella supplier then the northwest coast is the place for you."
But Why?? :
"Yeah, anywhere between Smithton and Devonport. Im from the Gold Coast and own property in numerous spots along there, the NW is the best part of Tassie. Check out Wynyard, or a little town called Penguin, of course I assume you wanna live along the coast. If not there are beautiful rural areas on the NW coast also such as Gunns Plains, Riana, Sheffield, all good and not far from town or all your conveniences. All the best."

THE 5 FORESTS OF TAMANIA Tasmanian forests are managed and run by a management and marketing arrangement on a 113,000 acre forest owned jointly by the government of Tasmania and a U. S. financial institution. Forest Tasmania has promised to supply logs to Rayonier Forest Tasmania has promised to supply logs to Auspine Forest Tasmania has promised to supply logs to FEA Forest Tasmania has promised to supply logs to ITC Forest Tasmania has promised to supply logs to Norge skog The problem is that they are all the same logs Forest Tasmania is contracted to FEA Who then sell the logs to ITC Who now must pass them on to Auspine to keep their 300 workers employed Forest Tasmania made $18000 profit last year Gunns profit was $88million 50 %(percent) one half of 50%(percent) Of the state of Tasmania has already been cleared of natural forest THESE trees are 500 to 800yrs old Do you think Forest Tasmania can replace them????? This Logging must stop…….look here and see the truth About 30% has been replanted with American native pine forest The political and economic corruption involved seems to be unsurpassed in Australian Political History Some inquiry into these actions has already commenced and more action is to be heard in the Victorian Courts in the very near future Tasmania will never replace the forest when it is gone If you value Australia , Stop this Gunns Pulp Mill in Tasmania And stop the logging Native forest logging is not sustainable Mike thanks for your asnwers but check out the link and see for yourself

naseldrip :
"I think about Tasmania and its problems constantly"
Cover girl :
"Big mess for such a little island."
Big Raymond :
"Sorry, someone has to supply Norske Skog, they make all the newsprint that we turn into your local newspaper. i know its un environmental, its not a good situation but at least there is a lot of effort being put into recycling these days to try to reduce the need to cut down old trees."
Shane :
