add on to your reservation
This experience is exclusive to The Woodbridge and can only be booked directly through our reservations portal.
Mid-morning, when you hear the seaplane approaching, wander down to The Woodbridge Private Riverfront Pontoon and watch Henry land on the mighty Derwent River and taxi up to meet you at the pontoon.
Take off flying upstream following the river towards the sweeping hills of the Derwent Valley.
When you touchdown on the pristine Lake Meadowbank, you will be met by a member of the family or staff of Meadowbank Farm and Vineyard, and transferred up to the historic homestead.
Meadowbank has a long history and engrossing stories. I love hearing about how the family fought off the bushfires that threatened the property …. a story that was repeated in recent years.
Meadowbank wines have a long pedigree and several incarnations, and the owners have an enviable private cellar.
Enjoy a tour driving through and walking in the vineyard, and then experience the delights of a wine tasting in ‘the shed’.
Relax under the tree with a glass or two and a grazing platter incorporating some of Tasmania’s finest produce.
When it is time to say goodbye, you will be transferred to the seaplane for the flight ‘home’ to The Woodbridge.
This experience is for up to 4 persons accompanied by a private pilot and guide.
Book the experience as an ADD ON to your room reservation.
We will first check that the seaplane and vineyard are available and will contact you when everything is confirmed.
This is a soft adventure nature package, so guests must be prepared for what nature serves up – rain, sun, cold etc. The pilot will determine if bad weather warrants cancelling the trip or not (experience cost will be refunded if the pilot calls the trip off).
No need to drive to the plane’s base or line up with crowds. The seaplane will collect you from The Woodbridge and return transfer you at the end of the experience.
