THE SEA GATEWAY.. TO THE APPLE ISLE OF TASMANIA..

Devenport is usually the first part of Tasmania that visitors arriving by Ferry from Melbourne get to see..Unfortuneatley now the ferry from Sydney no longer does the trip..A really good drive on drive off ferry that has all forms of accomodation.I just took a sleep seat...Devenport sees "The Spirit of Tasmania"arrive and depart three times weekly..The ferry carries a huge amount of fresh produce for the mainland that is grown here..Many visitors use Devenport as a base to visit many of the local towns ..Cradle Mountain..Burnie ,Stanley (the nut) ,Penguin and beautiful Boat Harbour are easily day trips from here.These ferries are extremely busy in the summer time...

SPIRIT OF TASMANIA LEAVING PORT MELBOURNE..

THE HISTORICAL DON RIVER RAILWAY... DEVENPORT..

This is a good way to spend the afternoon at this Historical railway..(see my tip on this place)
