Welcome to Devonport Airport! This is the start of your northern Tasmania adventure, so buckle up, because you’re in for an incredible ride. Devonport is a beautiful town that sits in the north of the state - where the Mersey River meets the Bass Strait. A thriving coastal city, Devonport is the gateway to many Tasmanian adventures.
Devonport has a warm and temperate climate. However, as with many parts of Tasmania, it’s partial to large amounts of rainfall during the year. Those lush green landscapes wouldn’t be possible without the rain! So, don’t be dismayed with any weather forecast, but do pack a rain jacket. You’ll still have a blast in Devonport and surrounding areas regardless of any rainfall.
Devonport Airport is the start of your north Tasmania adventure. Enjoy the rivers, oceans, and mountainous landscapes as you take to the roads with your Thrifty rental.
