FAM­ILY FO­CUS

Country Style - - DEVONPORT TASMANIA ON THE MOVE -

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).
