Devonport - Cities, Towns and Localities
Devonport is often referred to as the Gateway to Tasmania because it is the Tasmanian terminal for the Spirit of Tasmania Bass Strait service. Split into two by the Mersey River, Devonport was once two towns Formby (west bank) and Torquay (east bank). Merged in 1890 and named Devonport, the east bank of the Mersey River is known officially as East Devonport.

Devonport has a number of tours and attractions. A tourist orientated seaport city, there is an extensive range of accommodation and visitor facilities, as well a range of eateries, to suit all budgets.
