Looking out across the Bass Strait towards Melbourne, Devonport stands out against a backdrop of rolling hills, pastures, and coastal bluffs.

Get out of town with these interesting Devonport side-trips: Devils Gate Dam (in Barrington), Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park (Dove Lake Circuit, Cradle Mountain, & more) and Sheffield (Albert Gallery & Mosaic Pathway).
