Accomodation not in CBD

We are thinking of taking a trip to Hobart in November. I'm looking for suggestions of regions to stay not right in the city. Are there any beaches we could base ourselves at? We have an 8.5 month old.

Hobart is on the estuary of the Derwent River, so you need to travel quite some distance to find a "beach".

Riverfront Motel is out of the city centre on the river: http://www.riverfronthobart.com/

You might try looking at selft contained accommodation near Sandy Bay Beach which is about 5 - 10 minutes drive South from CBD, Clifton Beach which is about 35 minutes East and South Arm which is about 45 minutes East from Hobart CBD. Clifton Beach and South Arm have spectacular coastal scenery. No reliable public transport.. I cannot recommend any establishment personally. There may be something at Kingston Beach 20 min South. Blackmans Bay 25 min South or Margate 25 min south. As for the Riverfront Motel - there is no Beach there as it is upriver, in suburbia .
