The paranaple convention centre is located in Devonport, the heart of the north-west of Tasmania. The contemporary and flexible venue offers modern facilities for 10 to 400 delegates, on the doorstep of accommodation, restaurants, artisan markets, visitor activities and attractions.

Conveniently located nine kilometres from the Devonport Airport and three kilometres from the Spirit of Tasmania ferry terminal, paranaple offers multiple public transport options and is within walking distance of many accommodation venues. The third-floor auditorium is the jewel in the crown of the convention centre, enjoying floor-to-ceiling windows that take advantage of its waterside location, with spectacular views of the Mersey River and Bass Strait.

The spacious and flexible 400 banquet-seat auditorium offers modern facilities, including a freight elevator capable of moving vehicles. The convention space converts into three separate rooms, suitable for smaller conferences, trade shows or workshops. Plenary rooms are available in the adjacent paranaple arts centre, together with multiple break-out rooms throughout the art gallery.
