Launceston (pakana and palawa land) in Tasmania has long recognised itself as a city of entrepreneurs.

And the biggest start up – so far – to spring from the southernmost state’s second biggest city?

It could well be the City of Melbourne (Kulin Nation) after grazier John Batman sailed up the Tamar River from Launceston and across Bass Strait to settle the future capital almost known as ‘Batmania’.

Back in very liveable Launceston, other pioneering and entrepreneurial claims to fame would go on to include: the forming of the Launceston Chamber of Commerce in 1849 (today, Australia’s oldest); the founding of Australia’s first art society in 1891; and the invention of the notepad by Birchalls bookshop owner, J.A Birchall, in 1902.

These days – with help from services over the nb network – the city’s can-do spirit well and truly lives on, including in the lovely Launceston suburb of Invermay, where connectivity is helping business owners like Mike Cruse make a name for themselves.

Welcome to Invermay, Tasmania

Home to Inveresk – a precinct within the suburb – Invermay boasts 3,185 residents and 424 businesses*.

One of these locals, real estate agent Isabo Davidson, says Invermay has undergone a revival in the last five or so years.

“The location has really taken a turn. We’ve seen it become much more of a sought-after area with property prices reaching a new high.

“We’ve also been noticing quite a lot of younger people moving into the area.” A lot of this, says Isabo, is to do with how central the suburb is and the convenience that comes with that.
