The port city of Devonport, sitting prettily on Tasmania's lush mid-north coast, is a ferry port with services to and from Melbourne and one of the world's newest regional cruise destinations. It is the gateway to Cradle Mountain National Park and the World Heritage areas in the north of the state.
Its coastal countryside is reminiscent of the green rolling hills of old England dotted with little villages and spring blossoms. The City of Devonport itself, formed by the amalgamation of Torquay and Formby in 1893, is one of Tasmania's biggest towns, processing and exporting timber and foods. As well as shops and boutiques selling local wares, there are galleries and crafts centres featuring the work of local artists. Overlooking the mouth of the River Mersey into the Bass Strait is a lighthouse which dates from 1889, and nearby is the Tiagarra Aboriginal Culture and Arts Centre.
