Discover hidden gems in the heart of the North West region of Tasmania. Travel to Tasmania from Melbourne via the sea and you’ll arrive in Devonport. The port town is home to some of the best coffee in Tasmania. Guide your tastebuds through a Tasmanian adventure with the best produce in the state. Grab something to eat upon arrival from the cafes and restaurants that line the coast. Learn more about the history of the North West coastal region at the Bass Strait Maritime Centre before setting off to explore the attractions in the region yourself.
The iconic natural attraction Cradle Mountain is a hit with tourists who visit from all corners of the globe. The world heritage listed spot has been preserved to maintain native flora and fauna. With history that dates back thousands of years and a landscape that is made up of a number of different islands, mountains, rainforests and waterways, the North West region is unique to the rest of Tasmania.
The North West region is the perfect place to go with the family. Visit the North West region in November and take the kids to the country fair at Sheffield School Show.
