Devonport is the major point of entry for visitors travelling across Bass Strait.

The city of Devonport is the largest and most important port on Tasmania's north coast.

It is located at the mouth of the Mersey River, 98 km west of Launceston on the Bass Highway. The port's importance, particularly as far as visitors from the mainland are concerned, is that it is the arrival port for the Spirit of Tasmania I, II and III, the car ferries, which arrive from Melbourne and Sydney.

The Melbourne service operates daily and the Sydney service sails three times a week. Consequently it has become known as 'The Gateway to Tasmania'.

One of the benefits of this link with the mainland is that Devonport, of all the towns in Tasmania, outside Launceston and Hobart, offers an excellent range of modern motels and hotels.

Accommodation in Devonport is varied from modern motels and hotels, quaint bed and breakfasts, historic cottages, caravan parks, cabins and hostels catering for all budgets. Restaurants are also plentiful serving cuisine from Malaysian, Mexican, Indian, Italian, Seafood to Steak.

Devonport has a number of attractions close to the City Centre including aboriginal rock engravings, a maritime museum and a 7 km cycle/walking track which extends around the picturesque foreshore from the City past the Swimming Pool to the Don River Railway.

For visitors intending to spend some time in the Cradle Mountain National Park, it is located just 1.5 hours’ drive south of the City. Devonport is an important stop-off point to obtain information and purchase provisions for their trip to Cradle.

A bus service operates from the Devonport Visitor Centre and Cradle Mountain day tours and guided day and overnight bushwalking tours also depart from Devonport on a regular basis.
