What's on North Central Tasmania


The north central coast region of Tasmania is a varied, scenic and charming area that is rich in recreational opportunities, natural resources, wildlife, wonderful scenery, fascinating heritage, arts and crafts, and a truly magnificent coastline. The North Central Tasmania Region extends from the Tamar estuary along the coast to Heybridge in the west, near Burnie Ulverstone and Wynard, which form the western boundary of the Region. It includes the aptly named towship of Penguin (Yes there are Penguins there - Fairy Penguins). The region includes Low Head near the mouth of the Tamar River estuary, and includes Beauty Point, Port Sorell, George Town, and all the small towns all along the estuary and river to the major regional centre of Launceston. This is the regional capital in northern Tasmania and is the focus for most of the entertainment in the region. Also in the North Central Region are the hilly and mountainous areas, inland from the coast. The many National Parks and nature reserves are dotted with caves and other attractions. These areas provide wonderful opportunities for bushwalking and camping and for adventure sports such as mountain biking, abseiling and rock climbing. The Bass Highway runs all along the north coast of Tasmania providing excellent tourist access to all the coastal towns. The Tamar Highway heads inland and connects all the Tamar Valley towns. Devonport is the largest port on Tasmania`s north coast and it is the port for the ferries that connect Tasmania to Melbourne. Devonport is situated near the mouth of the beautiful Mersey River about 100 km west of Launceston. that has an airport. It is located on the Bass Highway. The famous Spirit of Tasmania passenger, freight and car ferries dock in Devonport bringing many tourists and their cars from Melbourne and mainland Australia. Many visitors without cars hire vehicles and head along the coast to the west and east. Another favourite route is to head southeast to Launceston and on to Hobart. Another options is to head south to Cradle Mountain. There is a wide range of beachfront accommodation in this wonderful region. The area abounds in things to do and see. Popular entertainment venues in Launceston include: Royal Oak Hotel, James Hotel, Irish Murphy's, Princess Theatre, Village Cinemas.
