Latrobe

Latrobe - North West Coast - Tasmania

Latrobe once enjoyed the highest profile on the north coast of Tasmania as a bustling port town in its hey day. More recently Latrobe has settled into its own rhythm with a quieter pace, situated just 11 kilometres south of Devonport and is known as the platypus capital of the world. Embark on a self guided tour of Gilbert street with no less than 76 lovingly restored heritage-listed buildings and shopfronts.

Latrobe has an admirable past of sensational triumphs with the richest wheel race and the Australian Axeman's Hall of Fame, a testimony to the towns woodchopping roots. Keep your eyes peeled at Warrawee Forest Reserve for the elusive platypus and visitors with a sweet tooth can satisfy those cravings with a sampling of chocolates, pralines and fudges at the House of Anvers Chocolate Factory.

Latrobe hosts a number of fabulous events throughout the year, check with the visitors centre for dates and details, Henley-on-the-Mersey regatta, Chocolate Winterfest, Latrobe Gift Footrace, Latrobe Wheel Race and Frogmore Fair.
