Devonport Airport

The Devonport Airport (DPO) is a small regional airport that is situated roughly 10km outside of Devonport, in northern reaches of Tasmania. This is an important facility for connecting this town to the mainland, and sees around 130,000 passengers each year take advantage of its links.

There is only one terminal, but don’t expect much in the way of facilities, as these are pretty thin on the ground. You will find a licensed kiosk selling drinks and snacks, a newsagency selling reading materials, and a small souvenir outlet.

Otherwise for getting out cash, connecting to the internet, and more dining options, we recommend taking advantage of the amenities at your connecting airport, or in Devonport town.

Qantas is the only airline that services this airport, and it runs direct routes five days a week to Melbourne (MEL). This is an excellent hub to be directed to though, as Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport (MEL) is one of the most comprehensive aviation facilities in the country with over 60 non-stop routes around Australia, as well as out to New Zealand, Australia, the Middle East, and North America.

Travel Information

·         At only 11km from the centre of town, a drive in a rental car should only take you 15 minutes. Take Pardoe Road/C701, then at the roundabout take the second exit onto Port Sorell Road/B74, then merge onto National Highway 1, and take the exit towards Devonport, and exit that will take you onto William Street. At the next roundabout, take the first exit to Steele Street, and you’ll be right in the middle of town. Booking your car online is the best way to save money, but also to ensure you get the car you want. Otherwise you can find car rental agencies available at the airport if you’d prefer to just organise one when you land.

·         As this is a small regional airport, taxis are the main method of transport to and from the township. They aren’t exorbitant though, as a typical fare will cost you about $25 all in. If you’d really rather not take a taxi, then we recommend booking private airport transfers online, as you can review whether or not there are cheaper options, and arrange for your pick-up to meet you when you land.
