In the small village of Sheffield, 32 km (20 miles) south of Devonport, more than 30 murals painted on the exterior walls of local buildings depict scenes of local history. Similar to murals found at Chemainus, British Columbia, they were painted in the late 1980s and depict industries (farming, cement manufacture) that had been carried out over the previous century but were then in decline. The village isn't worth a special detour, but it's an adequate rest point on the way to Cradle Mountain.
