Blackmans Bay is a beachside suburb of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.

Blackmans Bay south of Hobart was named after a James Blackman who occupied land there in the 1820s while another "Blackman Bay", near Dunalley (also in Tasmania) was so named in 1642 because of the presence of Aboriginal people.

The town is located adjacent to Kingston, and is approximately fourteen kilometres south of Hobart.

Although this area was predominantly shacks in the early days, bringing visitors by ferry from Hobart,the last 20 years has seen the area mature with many new houses,restaurants and shops. 
Blackmans Bay has become a popular area, not surprising given the incredible views and growing variety of leisure activities.
Extensive bushwalking areas are close by in the Peter Murrell Reserve and Tinderbox Hills Reserve where native wildlife is abundant and native rare orchids can be found.
Cedar Cottages Blackmans Bay are close to the Bayview Markets which have a great selection for all your needs. They also have a doctors surgery, newsagency, pharmacy, bakery, bottle shop, take away, homewares and bottle shop.
A major shopping centre is located 6 minutes away in neighbouring Kingston.
Buses run in the next street.
Besides our beautiful family friendly beach down the road, there are several other beaches just minutes away by car including a fantastic off lead dog beach at Kingston Beach,a marine park at Tinderbox and a calm secluded bay at Howden.
Blackmans Bay also offers a sports oval up the road, three golf courses less than 10 minutes away and  extensive sporting facilities at the Kingborough Sports Centre in Kingston as well as 3 public pools in the area.

Kingston is a city on the outskirts of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. Nestled 12 km south of the city between and around several hills, Kingston is the seat of the Kingborough Council, and today serves as the gateway between Hobart and the D'Entrecasteaux Channel region, which meets the Derwent River nearby. It is one of the fastest growing regions in Tasmania.[1] The Kingston-Huntingfield statistical area had an estimated population of 11,200 in June 2012.

Although the Kingston-Blackmans Bay region is statistically classed as a separate urban area to Hobart, Kingston is part of the Greater Hobart area. This is in part possibly due to the continuous urbanisation along the river front, its significant size, and the high number of Kingston residents working in the CBD of Hobart.
