Devonport is a coastal city of 25,000 people situated in the centre of Tasmania's North Coast. Whilst located close to the Tasmanian high country, including Cradle Mountain, Devonport is favoured with a temperate coastal climate influenced by the ocean. This maritime influence moderates all aspects of the climate and is evident in the small range between summer and winter average temperatures.
The Port of Devonport handles wheat, grain, cement and containerised goods outbound and fertilisers, fuels and consumables inbound.
Its proximity to mainland Australia ensures cost savings and easy access facilitates efficient operations associated with cargo, freight and passenger services.
