Welcome to your connection with our community on the South Arm Peninsula, Tasmania.

This site is being developed by volunteers from the South Arm Peninsula Residents’ Association Inc (SAPRA) and is dedicated to showcasing our vibrant community, its stories and our spectacular landscape.




Since its formation in 1989, SAPRA has been working hard to support, promote, and protect the interests and welfare of residents in our community.

We work co-operatively and pro-actively with all tiers of Government, other community organisations and groups, and businesses on a variety of projects and issues, building relationships as we go.

Our role is a mix of advocacy, support, connecting, facilitating and fixing.

Stories of our Peninsula

The South Arm Peninsula has a rich heritage of people and places with many stories to tell.

Over decades local historian, Maurice Potter, gathered countless images and tales to tell the story of European history, much of which is on display in our History Room at the South Arm Community Centre.  Michael Topfer has taken over stewardship of the collection, sharing and expanding the information further by adding short articles to our history page here, initiating history cruises on the ML Egeria and managing the active  South Arm Peninsula History Group on Facebook.
