North West Coast
The North West Coast is a region of Tasmania on the north coast of Tasmania to the west of Port Sorell, Tasmania. It includes towns such as Devonport, Burnie, Penguin, Smithton, Stanley. The water to the north is called Bass Strait.
The term Cradle Coast is the name of a regional local government authority within this region - the The Cradle Coast Authority which is a joint authority formed under the Tasmanian Local Government Act (1993) by the local government councils of Burnie City, Central Coast, Circular Head, Devonport City, Kentish, King Island, Latrobe, Waratah-Wynyard and West Coast (the participating Councils). The Cradle Coast region comprises the combined areas of the Authority's participating councils. The Authority is governed by a two-tiered structure comprising two representatives from each participating council (the Representatives) and a skills-based board of directors (the Board).
