Hobart is located on the estuary of the Derwent River in the state’s south-east. Geologically Hobart is built predominantly on Jurassic dolerite around the foothills interspersed with smaller areas of Triassic siltstone and Permian mudstone. Hobart extends along both sides of the Derwent River; on the western shore from the Derwent valley in the north through the flatter areas of Glenorchy which rests on older Triassic sediment and into the hilly areas of New Town, Lenah Valley. Both of these areas rest on the younger Jurassic dolerite deposits, before stretching into the lower areas such as the beaches of Sandy Bay in the south, in the Derwent estuary.The Eastern Shore also extends from the Derwent valley area in a southerly direction hugging the Meehan Ranges in the east before sprawling into flatter land in suburbs such as Bellerive.
