Devonport is quite often the 1st city that visitors arriving in Tasmania see.
Located on the banks of the Mersey River, it is the centre of Tasmania’s fertile Mersey/Forth valley.
Known as "Australia’s market garden" the area produces 40% of Tasmania's vegetable crop, so you will see crops of onions, potatoes, peas, carrots and beans, Orchards, and fields of Poppies & Pyrethrum Daisies which happened to be in flower when we were there this time.
It is the Tasmanian home port of Spirit of Tasmania I & II sailing from Melbourne. Devonport has nice foreshore parklands to Mersey Bluff Beach, and on to the Bluff itself and its landmark lighthouse and lookout.
