North West Tasmania, with Devonport’s paranaple Convention Centre at its heart, is an ideal destination for your next conference.  With contemporary design, our purpose built convention centre is ready to host a diverse range of events, accommodating up to 400 guests for banquets or 800 in a seated theatre style.

In local indigenous language, “paranaple” embodies the concept of “gathering place” and here at paranaple Convention Centre we proudly provide a riverside venue for coming together, sharing ideas and igniting inspiration.  With floor to ceiling windows and a full-length balcony, delegates can enjoy the waterfront views.

The venue is equipped with state-of-the-art technical facilities, ensuring a seamless and sophisticated experience for your conference.

The staff at paranaple Convention Centre are committed to providing personalised service, ensuring that your event is executed with precision.

Devonport, a laid-back coastal city, serves as the gateway to Tasmania.  Beyond the conference, attendees can explore beautiful beaches, coastal and bush trails, and immerse themselves in a thriving food and arts scene.  For those with time to spare, the world heritage sites of Cradle Mountain and Tarkine are a short scenic drive away, offering breathtaking landscapes and natural wonders.

Interstate delegates are spoilt for choice when it comes to transport options – The Spirit of Tasmania Ferry terminal is located 5 minutes from paranaple Convention Centre and Devonport Airport, serviced by 2 airlines Qantas & Rex, located just 10 minutes away.  There are a range of nearby accommodation options including the newly built Novotel within 1 minute walk.

paranaple Convention Centre has been recognised for excellence, winning the MEA 21/22 Tasmanian Event Venue Award for venues hosting under 1000 people.
