Levendale is a small settlement in the Southern Midlands Council area 53 km north of Hobart, Tasmania, Australia servicing the local farming community. Australian author and novelist Rachael Treasure resides in the area.
The settlement has a historic primary school, established 15 April 1901, which also serves as a community centre and focal point for the area. In 2008, facing the threat of closure with falling enrolments, the community rallied to increase the population of the area and save the school.
"Like it's the only thing Levendale has, we don't have a shop, a pub, or anything to fall back on, this is all we have, is our school, and it keeps the women supported and networking on behalf of the men as well, so it kind of flows through the whole community." said Rachael Treasure.
