What are the top tips for travelling with children to Devonport?

Leven Canyon Reserve

Hop in a rental car while visiting Tasmania on return flights to Devonport and drive about 50 minutes southwest. You’ll find yourself in Leven Canyon Reserve, which is home to the state’s deepest limestone ravine. There are several different walking tracks through the reserve, and each one has a stunning view over the dramatic Leven Gorge. The Cruikshanks Lookout and Edge Lookout tracks are both easy trails – perfect for families who book cheap flights to Devonport with young kids. Native plants and Tasmanian wildlife can be spotted along the way, and more advanced hikers can even walk through the canyon on the Canyon Floor Walk.

House of Anvers

The House of Anvers is a must-visit destination for all chocolate-lovers holidaying on flights to Devonport. The Belgian-style chocolate confectioner operates out of a small factory just outside of Devonport. Walk through the Museum of Chocolate to learn the process of how chocolate is made. Then peek into the factory to see the chocolatiers at work and sample a few of the chocolates. Order a chocolatey snack in the Anvers Cafe, such as cakes, decadent hot chocolates, and chocolate Belgian waffles. Visitors holidaying on return flights to Devonport can also purchase some House of Anvers chocolates to take home as a souvenir – if you and the kids can get it home without eating it first.

Don River Railway

The Don River Railway makes for a fun and educational experience for families holidaying on cheap flights to Devonport. Its tracks were built in the late 1850s, originally operating as a tramway and eventually being replaced by trains. The railroad was used to transport coal and limestone up until 1963. The Don River Railway is run by volunteers now, and there are plenty of things to see and do while visiting. Wander through the museum and workshop to learn about the railroad and see some of the antique trains that once travelled the Don River Railway. Visitors holidaying on flights to Devonport can then board a train and ride the scenic Don River Railway along the Don River toward Coles Beach.
