Southern Wild Distillery’s George Burgess, who has three children with his wife Paula, says Devonport is a great place to raise a family. “I love that I can grab our bikes and take the kids for a ride along the beach, or the river, go kayaking or play in the park, all within 10 minutes away. Everything is so accessible, there are no crowds, no traffic, no road rage, it’s just so peaceful.” Devonport also offers a number of early learning centres and a range of primary and secondary schooling choices. Geneva Christian College in nearby Latrobe offers Kindergarten to Year 12 education (geneva.tas.edu.au). Devonport campus of TASTAFE offers a range of courses including agriculture and science, business and accounting. There is a childcare centre next to the campus (tastafe.tas.edu.au). The Cradle Coast campus of University of Tasmania is at Burnie, 46 kilometres north-west, and offers face-to-face and online courses (cradle-coast.utas.edu.au).
