Devonport is a busy coastal city and hosts the Spirit of Tasmania ferry on its voyage to and from Melbourne. It's also the gateway to the North West and beyond, with a bounty of fresh produce on its doorstep and plenty to explore right in town. Located on the Mersey River and the Bass Strait coast, Devonport enjoys river, ocean and mountain views and is close to some of Tasmania's best natural places, including stunning Cradle Mountain. There are great beaches, rowing, sailing, kayaking and fishing. Walking and cycling tracks crisscross the city with plenty to see along the way including Aboriginal rock carvings on the coastal trail to The Bluff.
