I found a 577 m² uncleared level block in a small, quiet dead end street. Absolutely perfect.
It's less than a 10 minute stroll to the village, its shops, medical facilities, cafes, restaurants, pub and the jetty.
The block has power and water but I'm going off-grid, installing solar and rainwater tank. There is no sewage service on the island so I'll install a septic system.
I've had just enough of the block cleared to squeeze the cabin in. I plan to leave much of the native vegetation as is with perhaps just a small veggie patch and a few fruit trees.
Update: 10/1/22 site work commenced. If all goes to plan in about 3 weeks we can barge the cabin across to the island.
