“Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today” - James Dean
Experience Australia’s unique convict history in Tasmania’s only Small Luxury Hotel.
Situated on the banks of the beautiful Derwent River, Woodbridge is named after the first (wooden) bridge across it. The remains of the 1834 bridge and the later Victorian and nineteenth century bridgeheads adjoin the Pavilion, with the modern bridge on the farther side providing a wonderful facility for photographing Woodbridge and the beautiful river.
Woodbridge on the Derwent offers personalised luxury accommodation close to Hobart in a superbly restored, convict-built Georgian mansion. Our luxury hotel is just 30 minutes from the Hobart CBD.
A seamless blend of grand history and modern convenience, Woodbridge welcomes guests with its relaxed charm and easy comfort. Described by a guest as “like being given the keys to a friend’s country mansion”, Woodbridge is less a hotel, and more an experience of warm country hospitality.
Spend your days enjoying the visual beauty of the Derwent Valley, the food and the wine, the walks and the drives, the wilderness and the wildlife. At night, linger over dinner in the timeless elegance of our riverfront Pavilion, watching the rest of the world float by.
