Devonport
Looking out across the Bass Strait towards Melbourne, Devonport stands out against a backdrop of rolling hills, pastures, and coastal bluffs.
Kids will appreciate attractions like The Nut State Reserve and Don River Railway. Venture out of the city with trips to Tasmazia & The Village of Lower Crackpot (in Promised Land), Seahorse World (in Beauty Point) and Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park (Dove Lake Circuit, Cradle Mountain, &more). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre, pick up a one of a kind souvenir at Antique Emporium, cruise along Boat Harbour Beach, and get all the information you need at Wonders of Wynyard Exhibition and Visitor Information Centre.

To find more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Devonport online vacation planner.

In December in Devonport, expect temperatures between 25°C during the day and 10°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough to drive to Port Arthur.
