Location:
Hobart is a city of 200,000 people, about half of the population of the island state of Tasmania. Hobart enjoys the amenities of a capital city without the traffic and congestion of the larger mainland capitals. It is in easy reach of areas suitable for bushwalking, scenic drives, fishing, boating. On the shores of the Derwent River estuary and at the foot of Mount Wellington (1,300 metres) Hobart is the most picturesque of the Australian capital cities. Its size ensures a sense if community.
Background:
Words and photographs can only provide an impression of the spirit of Friends?, which comes from the quality of relationships between the school?s teachers, students and families. It is reflected in the lively and varied personalities of all the people who make up our school community.

Visitors to the School regularly remark upon the warmth and friendliness of students and staff at Friends' and I warmly invite you to share in the experience.
