Devonian haven (Tasmanien)
Devonian haven is a city at the northwest coast Tasmaniens. The city lain in the proximity of the delta of the Mersey River is with approx. 25,000 inhabitants the third biggest of the island.
Although the area around Devonian haven already in the 20's 19. Century was examined, lasted it several decades, until here larger settlements could develop. Only around 1851 with the today's Latrobe Formby in the west and Torquay in the east led the discovery of coal occurrences to an increase of the navigation and thus the emergence of several localities on both sides the river. After the building of a railway line after Formby (1885) and the building of the lighthouse (1889) Formby and Torquay were united 1890 to Devonian haven.
One of the objects of interest of the city is the Tiagarra Aboriginal Cultural Centre with a small museum for history and culture of the Tasmanier. In direct proximity are some rock designs of this become extinct culture.
Díe city maintains partnerships between cities with haven Phillip in Victoria and Minamata in Japan.
