make your stay truly memorable
The Derwent Descent is a luxury experience near Hobart, Tasmania. A soft-adventure guided kayak trip transfers guests from one luxury hotel to the next.
This is a private and exclusive experience, open only to guests of The Woodbridge or Truffle Lodge. We currently have Descents scheduled for:
31 January, 1,2,3 February
This epic adventure has you staying up-river at Truffle Lodge for the first two nights. On Day 3, after breakfast, you will kayak down river to The Woodbridge for the second part of your stay. While you are on the river in transit, you may see platypus and sea eagles, and will cross several low-medium grade rapids. Your guides are highly experienced and all equipment is provided.
While you are out for the day, staff can transfer your owner-driver car and luggage to The Woodbridge. Or if you have a hire car, we will organise transport back to collect your car. At The Woodbridge we will have a choice of hot or cold beverages and the option of a hot sauna and jacuzzi before going to your room. It is all down stream with the current, but there are various pick-up points planned for use as needed.
This package is a minimum 4 night stay, but you can extend the stay at either or both properties for a long as you wish.
This package includes:
