We arrived in Tasmania on the Spirit of Tasmania, and after a night in Devonport our very first destination was Tasmazia. It is billed as the world of bizarre, the unusual and a fascinating journey. We certainly weren’t disappointed! Tasmazia & The Village of Lower Crackpot was a lot of fun for the whole family.
Approximately a 40 minute drive from Devonport, after exiting the CBD you will find yourself on a number of winding country roads taking you all the way to Tasmazia. It was really well signed, but we found Google Maps extremely accurate during our trip of Tasmania by cabin & car, in terms of both time and direction. We were using Gofar to track this trip and it was amazing accurate the whole way.
Upon arriving at Tasmazia entry is through the gift shop and onsite there are plenty of picnic tables as well as a café selling coffee and hot food and snacks. We took a packed lunch and sat in the sun halfway through our visit. You can get a stamp which allows you in and out of the mazes, which are all interwoven across the site.
Throughout there are quirky sayings, riddles and jokes, which really helps with navigation. Heard that joke before? You’ve probably been there before! The boys really enjoyed hunting for some of the hidden items or worlds like the home of the three bears, Jack and Jill’s hill and more.
The Village of Lower Crackpot was a highlight for our boys, feeling like giants walking amoungst a miniature town. Around the corner we entered the united nations, with all major nations represented with their own embassies. There were a lot of jokes for young and old alike.
We were so glad we made this our first stop, the kids had a ball, as a family we really enjoyed it and it was a great first stop in Tasmania on our tour of Tasmania by cabin and car. After spending half the day at Tasmazia, we headed off towards Cradle Mountain.
