Building a port for future generations
QuayLink gives reference to the long-term history of port operations in Devonport since the 1800's and the critical future role that the port provides as a linkage between Tasmania and the mainland.
A significant investment for Devonport

Growing our tourism and trade activity

Thousands of job opportunities
