Port Arthur > Devonport
Head north on the Arthur Highway and then west on the A3 to cap off your holiday with two days in the New Norfolk area. Unload the bikes for a cycle along the trails at Mt Field National Park (or explore on foot). There are plenty of water activities, too – try canoeing or kayaking, or get out your fishing rods and catch a trout at Salmon Ponds. Drop in for a tasting at Two Metre Tall Farmhouse Ale & Cider and fill any remaining boot space with a case. Serious foodies should book a cooking class at The Agrarian Kitchen. To finish, take the Midland Highway (A1) to Devonport for approximately 90 minutes and buy seasonal fruit and admire stone colonial outbuildings at Somercotes Cherry Orchard and Café. Stop at the colonial settler town of Ross where cobbled paths and grand old elm trees line the main street, and take a selfie in front of the Ross Bridge, Australia’s third oldest bridge still in use. Finally pop in to the Tasmanian Wool Centre or shop for lastminute bargain antiques before completing the drive back to Spirit of Tasmania’s terminal in Devonport for the return journey to Melbourne.
