Devonport
Looking out across the Bass Strait towards Melbourne, Devonport stands out against a backdrop of rolling hills, pastures, and coastal bluffs.
Explore Devonport's surroundings by going to Beauty Point (Platypus House & Seahorse World), Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre (in Beaconsfield) and Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park (Dove Lake Circuit & Cradle Mountain). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Don River Railway, get your game on at Mini Golf Devonport, pause for some photo ops at Spirit of the Sea, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Southern Wild Distillery.

For photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Devonport driving holiday planner.
