The Setting: An oasis in Northern Tasmania
The Deviot Boat House is set on the idyllic Tamar River in Northern Tasmania. And in spite of being named a river, it is more or less a waterway that extends from the Bass Strait through to Launceston. This is both my house town and the closest significant city to Deviot. Launceston is among the significant hubs on the island, with direct flights daily to cities like Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. If you are flying into Tasmania you will likely fly into Hobart or Launceston and to be totally biased, I would advise the latter. Either way, you will likely go on a road trip around the island in a circular motion, so it wont make much of a difference which city you pick to get here in. Nevertheless, if you are preparing an escape to Deviot Boat House, you are simply a short thirty-minute drive away once you touch down at Launceston Airport.
