Huntingfield is an outer suburb of the greater Hobart area, bordering Blackmans Bay and Kingston. The area was created in the late 1980s. Located in Huntingfield are Tarremah Steiner School, St Aloysius Catholic College and Kingborough Family Church.[2] In 2017 it's houses were the fastest selling in Australia, which was attributed to resonable prices, and a good range of services.[3]

History[edit]

The first European to visit the area was botanist Robert Brown in 1804, and the area was later settled by the Lucas family. It was predominantly an agricultural area until the late 1960s when bushfires, changes in the export market and the completion of the Southern Outlet road to Hobart caused urbanisation and growth.[4]
