A great city for children


Hobart is a great city for children with child friendly environments and services that contribute positively to the development of Hobart children’s happiness and well-being.


Establish a Lord Mayor’s Children’s Reference Panel to hear directly from them about city issues.
Advocate for:

  • An increase in funding for playgrounds that appeal to a wide range of children.
  • Speed limit reductions and more pedestrian crossings to provide safer streets for children to move around their neighborhoods independently.
  • Free wifi in a number of public parks and city streets to make it easier for young adults to connect to information and each other.
