Devonport City Council - The City with Spirit
The City of Devonport is ideally located on the Mersey River in the heart of the beautiful North West Coast of Tasmania. This unique location opens up the City to the river, ocean and mountain views, and a lifestyle by its 25,628 residents. Devonport offers a safe and pristine environment, friendly and welcoming people and plenty of opportunities. Devonport is the major sea gateway to Tasmania and its thriving port is the home for the two passenger ferries, Spirit of Tasmania 1 & 2. These ferries connect Devonport with Melbourne, offering daily sailings.
Devonport airport is the third largest in Tasmania, with frequently scheduled daily services to Melbourne's Tullamarine Airport. Devonport is particularly well known for its reserves and recreational facilities. From the kilometres of walking and cycling tracks, beautiful beaches, a river suitable for a number of water sports, great fishing and numerous parklands, the City encourages an active and family friendly lifestyle.Cultural facilities include the Devonport Regional Gallery, which has a collection of Tasmanian art works, ceramics, prints and photographs; the Bass Strait Maritime Centre, with a collection relating to early shipping activities; and the Devonport Entertainment & Convention Centre, which is the premier entertainment facility on the North West Coast.
Although the municipal area is small in size for Tasmania, at only 114 square kilometres, it is the centre for a rich agricultural district which produces a significant amount of Tasmania's vegetable crops (beans, onions, peas and potatoes), as well as cereals, oil poppies, pyrethrum and other crops. Dairy production and processing is also significant. Secondary industries include processing of agricultural products, which represent a large share of total Australian production. The region also produces cement of which large tonnages are exported through the Devonport port.
We're also planning for the future and leading the way in the re-invigoration of the CBD through the LIVING CITY project.
We welcome you to Devonport and invite you to explore our website to learn more about how we support the life of our community, and about the exciting future, we're building in Devonport.Devonport - The City with Spirit!
