I've posted before about the reasonable house prices in certain parts of Brisbane, and out of curiosity, I've been looking at Tasmania for bargains as well.
Now, it may have high unemployment and (probably) more than its fair share of ice addicts, but as long as you don't want to live at Sandy Bay in Hobart, the buying is still remarkably good. Especially if you go to Launceston, where I'll concentrate today. Look:

I wonder what the fishing is like in the Tamar River? I'm feeling like a reverse Ratso from Midnight Cowboy, where he says "The two basic items necessary to sustain life are sunshine and coconut

amount of coconut trees there."
For me, it's more like "The two basic items for life are a cheap but cosy house, and salmon. They've got a terrific amount of both in Tasmania."
