Explore Devonport and Burnie
Devonport and Burnie sit on the North West Coast of Tasmania, an area responsible for producing 40 per cent of Tasmania’s vegetables and fresh produce. The Spirit of Tasmania ferries travel daily between Devonport and Melbourne and each crossing carries over 1400 passengers. Devonport is the gateway to the North West and beyond, having access to some of Tasmania’s best natural scenery including Cradle Mountain. Being a recreational seaside town, Devonport has access to great beaches and water activities as well as walking and cycling tracks.
Burnie is historically an industrial hub but has become better known for being a vibrant and creative city focused on artisans and makers. Burnie is also home to the University of Tasmania’s Cradle Coast Campus, with modern purpose-built facilities and flexible learning spaces that offer a balance of study and recreation. The Cradle Coast Campus includes the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture and the Rural Clinical School for medical students, both of which focus on specialised research and training.
