Deloraine sits on the banks of the Meander River and is backdropped by the Great Western Tiers. It’s relatively small town, with a population of 3000, but every year it hosts Tasmania’s largest craft fair and the population swells.
When in Deloraine you need to take the walk along the Meander River; it’s incredibly tranquil. There are often ducks and I have heard reports of platypus too.
Deloraine is just off the Bass Highway, and a great stop about halfway between Devonport and Launceston.
