Glenorchy is about 7 kilometres north of the Hobart CBD.
The area runs from New Town Rivulet in the south to the Black Snake Rivulet in the north and features undulating plains, rising steeply in the west to a line of hills.
There are approximately 44,500 people in Glenorchy, enough to qualify for city status.
It is thought Glenorchy was named after a Scottish village on the Orchy River, by Lachlan Macquarie.
Glenorchy is known for two geographic features: The Derwent River and Mount Wellington.
Other attractions include the Cadburys Factory at nearby Claremont, the Alpenrail model railway and Swiss village, Moorilla Vineyard and Restaurant, the Tasmanian Transport Museum and the Royal Hobart Showgrounds.
