What are the top things to do and see in Devonport?

Tasmanian Arboretum

For a day out amongst nature, the Tasmanian Arboretum is a great place to head. Approximately 15 minutes from Devonport’s CBD by car, the arboretum houses a wide assortment of plants originating from all corners of the globe. Enjoy a stroll through the landscaped arboretum grounds after your flights from Adelaide to Devonport arrive or spend time exploring areas of natural bushland. Plan a visit to a few of the park’s scenic viewing points and soak up the beauty of the area, or, if you’re a wildlife lover, stop by the park's purpose built bird and platypus hides. Several self guided walks can be found within the arboretum, with guided tours also available.

Spirit of the Sea

Standing at five metres tall, the striking Spirit of the Sea sculpture overlooks the waters of Devonport’s Mersey River. Illuminated after nightfall, the bronze sculpture of Neptune greets those who travel to the city by boat, but can also be admired from the shore if you’ll be arriving on cheap flights from Adelaide to Devonport. If you’re wanting to see the sculpture and its finer details, including sculpted barnacles and shells, up close, you’ll find it located a short distance from the Bass Strait Maritime Centre.

Don River Railway

Carrying passengers from Devonport to Coles Beach and back again, a ride on the volunteer-run Don River Railway is a must-do when visiting the Tasmanian city. Providing great views of the Don River and wider Devonport, the return trip to Coles Beach takes approximately 30 minutes, leaving enough time to see more of the city before or after your ride. From Wednesday to Sunday, trains depart six times daily, providing plenty of opportunities to take a ride once your Adelaide to Devonport flights touch down. If your trip to Devonport is due to fall on a Monday or Tuesday, you can still learn more about the railway with a visit to the onsite museum. Spend time admiring the photographs and memorabilia on display or enjoy a wander through the workshop filled with heritage trains and carriages.
