Opossum Bay is located in the outskirts of Hobart town in Tasmania. It is surrounded almost completely by water, due to the presence of the Derwent River and Ralphs Bay. These water bodies enable cool summers due to the breezes, as well as swimmable shores due to the shallow nature of the area. It also has warmer waters which is ideal for young and new swimmers. It is not a complete island, as it is connected to the South Arm Peninsula by a narrow isthmus. The waters of the bay are filled with fishing boats, and there are plenty of recreational activities for guests including a lighthouse, numerous gardens, stunning beaches, and touring cruise ships.
