Sandy Bay is a suburb of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, located just south of the central business district and adjacent to the suburb of Battery Point. Sandy Bay is bounded to the east by the Derwent River and has several beaches along the coast, the main beaches accessible to the public being Short Beach, Nutgrove Beach, Long Beach and Lords Beach. The suburbs have many large houses and are known to be one of the most prestigious areas of the city. In the southernmost areas of Sandy Bay, near the water and also on the slopes of Mount Nelson, are some of Tasmania's most expensive real estate. It is also the site of the Hobart campus of the University of Tasmania and private schools, Fahan School, Hutchins School and Mount Carmel College, Sandy Bay. There is great diversity in the suburbs. The area around the University of Tasmania is full of student accommodation. Sandy Bay can be reached from the city via Sandy Bay Road, which runs from Davey Street in the city to the Kingborough city boundary in Taroona, where it becomes the Channel Highway. Before the construction of the South Store, the road was the main route to and from Kingston. The higher parts of Sandy Bay are accessed via Regent Street, past the main shopping district and past the University to Churchill Avenue and Lower Sandy Bay. Australia's first legal casino, the Wrest Point Hotel Casino, opened in 1973 on the site of the former Wrest Point Riviera Hotel.
