The city of Devonport was chosen for the venue of the 2019 ASF Conference, specifically for its proximity to the Mole Creek Karst Area.   But, let’s not forget about the rest of Tasmania, and there’s so much to do – bushwalking, mountain bike riding, kayaking and more!

Located on the north coast of Tasmania on the Mersey River, Devonport is the third largest population centre in Tasmania. It is also the southern port of the Spirit of Tasmania, the daily ferry from the mainland of Australia to Tasmania. For this reason it has a rich maritime history.

Other attractions found around the Devonport area include food tasting (wine, cider, cheese, chocolate, cherries), cycling, boating, fishing, and walking.

Devonport is often referred to as the gateway to the rugged wilderness of the north west of Tasmania. December to January is summer in Devonport. Daily temperatures average between 10-20°C however this can vary from low thirties to just above zero degrees celsius. It is Tasmania – be prepared for anything!
