Devonport, the third-largest population centre in Tasmania, with a population of 22,000, was first settled by Europeans in 1826. The town centre is within an easy 15-minute walk.
To find it from the Launceston side, drive over the bridge at Devonport, then turn up the off-ramp to the left. Then turn right over the over-pass and continue down William Street, turn right into Charles Street, then right into Victoria Street, where the unit is on the right at the back left of a group of 6 units.
The main attractions are the Don River tourist railway, the Maritime museum, Bramich’s early motoring and folk museum, Taswegia, a printing museum and Tiagarra Tasmanian Aboriginal Culture and art centre with rock carvings outside. Devonport is a good base from which the whole North West Coast can be enjoyed, right through Ulverstone, Penguin, Burnie Wynyard to Smithton and the Stanley Nut chair lift. Also, from Devonport, one can travel to Queenstown and Strahan on the West Coast through the rain forests to travel on the APT railway and up the famous Gordon River.
