About us

Waterfront News and Lotto has been serving the people of Devonport for over 25 years. Now located directly within the heart of the Devonport Living City development, we are well situated to provide all of your traditional newsagency items such as greetings cards, newspapers, magazines, stationery, tobacco products, TattsLotto, drinks, sweets and snacks*.

We also offer an extensive range of fantastic jigsaw puzzles from some of the biggest manufacturers from around the world, as well as a huge range of Games Workshop products, board games, card games and tabletop games.

After working for decades behind desks in London, Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra, Rod and Chris became the new owners of Waterfront News and Lotto in October 2018.

One of the first things we wanted to do was to make it easier for people to browse and shop with us, so we extended our daily opening hours and now open seven days a week!

Our opening and closing times generally align with the arrival and departure of the Spirit of Tasmania, and we have free parking right at the front door!

But we have to close sometimes, so we decided to to make an extensive range of our products, from many suppliers and categories, available to buy 24 hours a day, seven days a week!

We're really pleased to have your custom online!

*Note that not all of these categories are available for purchase online.
