The above map shows the Brooker Highway (top of map), the main highway into Hobart, and Main Road (bottom of map). Note that there is a very large BUNNINGS store on the corner of the Brooker Highway and Howard Road (you cannot miss it!).

There are two shopping centres in Glenorchy, and one can be seen bottom left of the picture. The other is very nearby. Glenorchy has banks, shops and amenities that you will need.
