Suburb Profile – Invermay

Invermay is one of Launceston oldest suburbs located on the edge of the Tamar river just minutes walk from the Launceston CBD.

While Invermay is home to many business warehouses the beautiful quaint cottages tucked away in between are well sought after properties! The potential is endless in Invermay, from restoration of character homes to contemporary industrial living.

The University of Tasmania Stadium is located on the edge of Invermay and attracts national events in their state of the art stadium. Whilst the relocation of the University of Tasmania in a $280 million project which has been earmarked to start construction at the end of 2018 is the launch pad for the reshaping of Invermay from once a semi commercial precinct to one of the most trendy and sought after suburbs for years to come.

The Blue café next to the University is very popular with locals with alfresco dining or the option to hire out the venue for formal events. Blue café offers seasonal local produce, many of which products can be purchased from the very popular local Harvest Market which is a 2 minute walk from Invermay.

Invermay’s North Bank has everything you need from museums, cafes, bbq facilities, playgrounds, sport and recreation areas to connecting boardwalks that follow the Tamar River bank to Penny Royal and even as far as the picturesque Cataract George. Living in Invermay will connect you to all aspects and lifestyles of Launceston.

“Once looked down upon by locals if Invermay has reinvented itself in less than 10 years and would be the leading suburb for development in this City! On the City fringe, I love the side streets which run beside the North Esk, have a wander through Frank, Goodwin, Balaclava and Esk Streets which showcase renovated cottages (and some which yearn for some tender, loving care!!) and why Launceston’s heritage is so sought after – they make the perfect Airbnb, if only the walls could talk!” – Josh
