Our Beacon Cove Community
Live amongst the discerning and astute few with 481 houses showcasing approximately forty state-of-the-art designs, all custom-built to the most exacting standards, to suit the ever-changing demands of today’s families—from a small selection of low-maintenance one or two-bedroom homes to the luxuriously appointed four and five-bedroom villas, with the majority boasting three light-and-bright bedrooms spanning over two storeys, two spacious living areas, two modern bathrooms and a single multi-purpose garage with remote control. There are also a number of three-level home offices equipped with a dual entry—perfect for consultant professionals who operate a business from home.
Apartments at Beacon Cove are sure to command envy and attention as their five towers are perched right on the beach with nothing but picture-perfect white sand between you and the sparkling waves. Many of the units showcase either water views or the city skyline and some small number simply enjoy both!
The first point of arrival for thousands of immigrants in the days gone by. Station Pier is now home of The Spirit of Tasmania I & II ferries, aboard which you can bring your own cars across Bass Strait to Launceston and beyond. Many of the world’s premier cruise ships and ocean liners also berth here including the spectacular Voyager of the Seas, Celebrity Solstice and the Pacific liners, amongst numerous others.
Station Pier also boasts highly regarded waterfront restaurants: Mr. Hobson with its own Noom Duck café bar and a large function hall or The Waterfront for an all-out decadent night with live Jazz every Friday plus Anchor & Hope for substantial modern Australian meals and D’lish Fish serving up fresh casual seafood daily.
Right next to Station Pier is a gelato shop, Yoga/fitness Studio and a conveyancing practice plus Beacon Cove Food Store, a dry cleaner and IGA Express Liquor.
