Your guide to Devonport

All About Devonport

The busy coastal city of Devonport is known as the gateway to the northwest of Tasmania and beyond. The region around the city produces an abundance of fresh local produce and has a number of natural attractions. Located both on the Mersey River and the Bass Strait coast of Australia, Devonport offers river, ocean, and mountain views, and is on the doorstep of some of Tasmania's most famous landmarks, including the spectacular Cradle Mountain. There are many excellent beaches nearby offering an array of water activities for all ages. The city also benefits from numerous walking and cycling tracks passing many points of interest, including Aboriginal rock carvings on the coastal trail to The Bluff, and the trail leading to the Mersey Bluff Lighthouse, famous for its distinctive vertical red striped day mark. Devonport is also a major port: the Spirit of Tasmania ferry arrives daily here from Melbourne.


How do I get around Devonport?

Devonport has its own airport, but services mainly regional flights. Launceston Airport (LST) is the closest major airport, with flights arriving daily from Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane. Here you can rent a car for the easy 75-minute drive to Devonport. Alternatively, you could take the bus from Launceston, which runs regular services seven days a week. A more scenic route from Melbourne is across the Bass Strait on the Spirit of Tasmania, which sails overnight and offers entertainment onboard. This is a vehicle ferry, so you can take your car for easy access to all the region’s attractions. Once in the city, getting around by foot is easy and pleasant, and there are several paths for cycling that take you all around town, with bike hire options available.


When is the best time to stay in a holiday rental in Devonport?

During the summer months, Devonport is filled with sunshine, perfect for beach time and enjoying the water sports on offer. The city also hosts summer farmers markets and festivals, including the well renowned Devonport Jazz Festival, which takes place in July and attracts musicians from far and wide. April and May are good months for exploring the city and beyond as the trees transform with autumn colours. Although cooler, winter is a lovely time to be in Devonport, watching beachfront storms while sitting in front of an open fire. If you are planning on a winter stay, bring plenty of layers, as it can get very cold. Whenever you decide to visit, you will find a range of accommodation in Devonport to suit.


What are the top things to do in Devonport?

Don River Railway

Take a five-minute drive from the city to the village of Don, renowned for its vintage railway. The museum and workshop are home to Australia's largest steam locomotive collection, and you can enjoy a ride on one of the vintage engines. Trips run hourly to and from Coles Beach from Monday to Saturday, while on Sundays you can take a ride onboard a steam train.

The Spirit of the Sea

Head to the mouth of the Mersey River and see the Spirit of the Sea bronze statue, which sits proudly at the entrance to the Port of Devonport. Weighing 700 kilograms, it was installed in 2009 as a symbol of protection for the city. At the lookout you can stare into Bass Strait for miles, and watch as the ships come and go, including the Spirit of Tasmania.

Tasmanian Arboretum

Take the short 15 minute drive to the Tasmanian Arboretum in Eugenana, where you will discover 66 hectares of landscape displays, including Tasmanian woody plants. You can walk along old railway formations and see an abundance of local birds, and if you are lucky, you may even spot a Platypus at Founders' Lake. There are many picturesque walks you can take, with the Limestone Heritage Walk a highlight.
