About the practice

This charming clinic is unmistakeably a veterinary practice, with its exterior displaying large photos of cats and dogs along the front façade. The family-owned and operated clinic is located in a prime position within a seaside town on the popular North West Coast. Since its inception over 10 years ago, the clinic has been providing quality animal care to the community and its animal friends. The owners are selling to retire and locum around Australia but are willing to stay on post sale to show the purchaser the ropes and help make the transition to coastal life. There is potential for growth, as the practice is currently running on reduced hours and has ceased large animal work. This is a fantastic opportunity with plenty of potential.

About the area

Penguin is a delightful seaside town situated along the north-west coast of Tasmania, between Burnie and Devonport. Humouring the town’s name, the community has a quirky collection of penguins on the streets. The area received its name from a nearby penguin rookery, which charms tourists from all over during the breeding months of September to March. Another major visitor attraction is the permanent undercover markets hosted in town every Sunday. The Mount Montgomery State Reserve lives in South Penguin and serves as a welcome mat for the Dial Range, which expands into the vast forest that blankets the entirety of Tasmania’s western half. With this backyard, both residents and tourists enjoy the many bush walking trails the forest offers. For canoeing and fishing enthusiasts, there are several nearby rivers that wind around Penguin. 

Pengiun also has a a school from prep to year 12, wineries and a boutique brewery as well as Mt Gnoman farm (a major event centre for bands weddings).
