Well known for being the arrival and departure point for the Spirit of Tasmania ferry service, Devonport is often overlooked by many Tasmanian visitors.

A short visit to the Lighthouse atop the Bluff one can enjoy expansive views of the northern Tasmania coastline in both directions. With an excellent and easy walkway down from the lighthouse to the main beach of Devonport the walking track continue around the Bass Strait waters edge, beside the river port, and into the centre of town.

The river is also an excellent place to sit and watch the large vessels travel in and out of this narrow waterway. The boats are so close it feels like you can almost touch them as they glide majestically through the water.

For the historians there are two places of interest here in Devonport. Home Hill, operated by the National Trust, is open to the public. This was the home of Joseph and Enid Lyons, Tasmania's most celebrated politicians. Joseph was the 10th Australian Prime Minister and the only Tasmanian to hold this post. Enid was the first female in the House of Representative and Federal Cabinet. The other place of interest is the newly refurbished Maritime Museum which house a myriad of boating and marine artifacts from years gone by.

Chocolate lovers are catered for at the small but inviting House of Anvers chocolate factory at nearby Latrobe. Be sure to have one of there famous Hot Chocolates - a pure delight to warm the cockles. For beer lovers there is the delightful Seven Sheds Brewery located at nearby Railton. A great way to start, or end, your Tasmanian Holiday.
