Devonport is the third largest city in the state of Tasmania, Australia located on the north coast, on the Bass Strait.
Devonport, along with the centres of Ulverstone, Latrobe, Wynyard and Burnie is part of Tasmania’s North West or Cradle Coast region.
Often referred to as the gateway to Tasmania, being the arrival port of the daily Bass Strait ferry service from the mainland.
With a population of around 25,000 people, Devonport is really just a large town. The main part of the town, West Devonport sits largely between the Don River to the West and Mersey River to the East. The other part of the town, East Devonport is directly across the Mersey River from the town centre. Devonport boasts a number of pleasant beaches, natural bush reserves and striking headlands including the Mersey Bluff with its lighthouse sitting atop.
Devonport is the closest point of arrival to the World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park, only around an hours drive away.
