Devonport

— 1 night
Looking out across the Bass Strait towards Melbourne, Devonport stands out against a backdrop of rolling hills, pastures, and coastal bluffs.
Kick off your visit on the 1st (Tue): make a trip to Tasmania’s Town of Murals, explore the stunning scenery at Leven Canyon, and then brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Southern Wild Distillery.

Plan my Devonport trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Melbourne to Devonport is an approximately 3-hour flight. You can also ride a ferry. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Melbourne in December: high temperatures in Devonport hover around 25°C and lows are around 10°C. You'll have a few hours on the 2nd (Wed) to wrap things up before traveling to Hobart.
