Opossum Bay, Tasmania


Opossum Bay Post Office opened on 16 January 1942 and closed in 1980.[1]


The origin of Opossum Bay's name is unclear.[2]

Opossum Bay is nearly surrounded by water. The Gellibrand Point, Opossum Bay and South Arm Town area is connected to the rest of the South Arm Peninsula by a narrow isthmus. The proximity to the Derwent River and Ralphs Bay can result in Opossum Bay frequently being cooled by sea breezes in summer.[3]
