Tasmania Police has responded to a hoax bomb threat in the state’s South.

Police say an incident occurred on Ross Avenue at Rosny Park, near the Eastlands shopping centre, on Wednesday.

The threat was made against a building in which Franklin Labor MHR Julie Collins’ electoral office is located.

Hobart Pathology also has an office in the building.

Several takeaway franchises are located at the address, as well.

Ms Collins is currently in Canberra for the final sitting week of the House of Representatives for 2017.

Fairfax Media understands the threat was not directed at Ms Collins’ office.
