"Devonport" Devonport by Kate-Me
Devonport Travel Guide: 33 reviews and 74 photos
Devonport is for many the Gateway to Tasmania (particularly if you've taken the Ferry)
The first thing I'd like to say is: You may hear plenty of stories about the 'rough, mountainous seas of bass strait' and I was a bit concerned, but our 10 hour overnight crossing over was just a little rough, no real problems, and the day journey home was as calm and tranquil as glass.
I found it the perfect way to travel, much better than the plane, short though that trip may be.
After our arrival, here at the Mersey Bluff lighthouse lookout, we had a great view of the ship departing Devonport.
- Pros:Great views, nice sandy & rocky beaches
- Cons:Cooler than mainland Australia (but everywhere in Tassie seems to be)
- In a nutshell:A great gateway to Tasmania, well equipped town
Facilities were good: the usual camp kitchen, laundry, amenities blocks all sufficient, etc. Cost was reasonable ($7... more travel advice
This town is a HUGE must see. From the guide book it sounded interesting, but the reality proved to be even more... more travel advice
