Cities & Areas for House Sitting in Tasmania
Known for its relatively unspoilt natural environment and attractions, Tasmania is the only island state of Australia
Tasmania packs a punch when providing culture and color to the country. The naturally beautiful and inspiring environment holds the state up simply on its own. Abundant rainforests, immense mountain ranges and graceful and curving rivers from the heart of the state to the coast; are just some of the things Tasmania has to offer for potential house sitters!
Tasmania is definitely cooler than on the mainland. The winters are relatively mild and the summers are rather cool. Even in summer, snow-capped mountains over 1,200 meters are not uncommon.
There are many national parks spread across the island, all offering stunning scenery, often with hiking trails and a range of outdoor activities. Some of these include Tasman National Park, Mt Wiliam National Park and Tasmania’s largest national park, Southwest National Park.
The harbourside capital city Hobart is a beautiful scene of sails and spinnakers along the port. Well known for its sandstone and seafood, Hobart is just one city amongst the many in Tasmania that not only houses urban and industrialised areas but naturally attractive scenes and views.
The second largest city on the island is Launceston in the Tamar Valley to the north. This is where the North Esk and South Esk Rivers meet, surrounded by 1,500m mountains, providing a scenic backdrop to the commercial and cultural center of North Tasmania.
Another significant city in Tasmania is Devonport, which is located near the mouth of the Mersey River. Devonport is considered the “Gateway to Tasmania” due to it’s large and important ferry port. A lighthouse built in 1889, which is called “Bluff Lighthouse”, is particularly worth seeing.
Hobart – the capital of Tasmania
The city of Hobart is the capital city of Tasmania. Situated on the south-east region of Tasmania, water related activities dominate Hobart and it is known as a place of yachts, fishing boats and cafes by the sea. There’s plenty to do whilst house sitting in Tasmania!
The majority of Hobart’s key attractions are located within or around the metropolitan centre and the harbor. One of the Hobart’s most famous landmarks Mt Wellington, is located just south of the city. Here you can Bushwalk along the pipeline track, take one of many trails leading to the springs, cycle up the main mountain road or abseil off the cliffs labelled the ‘organ pipes’.
Another major attraction are The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens with over 5000 native and exotic plant species. There is also an amazing conservatory and a sub-Antarctic plant house.
If you’re a chocolate lover, be sure to take a ferry from the Hobart wharf to Cadbury’s chocolate factory! Here you can go on a tour and watch how the Chocolate is made every step of the way. Feast on as much chocolate as you want and buy great discounts after the taste testing is over.
If beer is more your flavor, then check out Australia’s oldest brewery: the Cascade Brewery, located just ten minutes out of the city.

What is expected of me as a House Sitter?
As a house sitter, you will be expected to perform agreed tasks that involve caring for a home owners property and pets. This includes taking care of all the usual daily tasks involved with running and maintaining a home such as house cleaning, garden maintenance, pool maintenance, general house security, forwarding or collecting mail, caring for pets and the occasional odd job. House sitters are expected to bring their own food and some may prefer to bring their own linen and cooking utensils. All this needs to be discussed prior to acceptance of the house sitting position.
Do I need references and experience in House Sitting?
References are a major advantage and are therefore we say it’s a must for all house sitters. Obviously the best type of reference would be from someone you have house sat for, however even a character reference/s from people that have known you for a reasonable amount of time are acceptable. These may include your landlord (if you have rented in the past), your employer, friends or people you know with an advanced standing in the community. Your reference/s can be written and or verbal, with the referrer agreeing that you can provide their phone number to home owners.
