Where to go When Based in Devonport
The Local Trail in Tasmania takes you to the northern town of Devonport. Well known as the starting (or ending, depending on how you look at it) point for the Spirit of Tasmania, Devonport is a bustling city at the edge of one of Tasmania’s most famous parklands: Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park.
Start your day visiting the beautiful Coles Beach just north of the city. Grab a coffee and soak up the serenity while sipping on your brew. If you’re feeling brave, take a dip in the crisp water to energize yourself for the day ahead.
Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park TAS
Once you’ve wrapped up your beachy moment, it’s time to dive straight into the lush wilderness Tassie is so well known for. Cradle Mountain offers a number of hiking and walking trails suited to all levels of fitness. Whether you’re an avid trekker keen to soak up sprawling views from mountain tops, or enjoy a leisurely stroll around a calming lake, Cradle Mountain has a trail for you. The air is crisp, the trees are green and (if you’re lucky) the wombats are out. See some of Australia’s most unique and, dare we say, adorable wildlife in their natural habitat.
