Devonport is a large city, with an approximate population of 28,000 people. It is located north of Hobart, in the state of Tasmania. It is situated in the centre of the north-western coast of the island.
Its postcode is 7310, which makes it an area eligible for backpackers and people wanting to come and work and travel Australia to extend their Working Holiday Visa to an Extended Working Holiday Visa.
It is located about 280 km's from Hobart, which should take about 3.5 hours to drive if you don't take any long stops along the way.
Devonport is best known for growing a range of vegetables, with the best months from January to June.
From July to December you may be able to find work, but it is not known as a peak season. During these months I recommend you organise a job before you get there, otherwise you may find that there is no work available.
A range of other crops are grown in the area, however the availability of work in these crops is limited. The best time of year to try to find work in one of these other crops is between December to April.
Generally lots of work. There may be work. Generally no work.
