Summary

"In its early days, South Hobart was a working-class suburb, with a pub on every corner and a population who worked hard and played hard. Today, its residents value South Hobart for its beauty, friendliness and sense of community. Close to central Hobart, it is also close to nature in its prime position beneath Mount Wellington."--Back cover.
