Luxury Experience near Hobart – Introducing the epic Derwent Descent Package


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 and to Truffle Lodge.


In all our years of arranging Stay Put Touring for our guests, we have never had as much excitement around an experiences as much as we have had for our Derwent Descent package.


So, in case you are one of the few who has missed hearing about it, here are the details.


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 will transfer your luggage to The Woodbridge. Or if you have a hire car, we will organise transport back to collect your car. You will arrive at the river pontoon at Woodbridge to refreshments by the river and the option of a hot sauna and jacuzzi before going to your room. Various drop off points will be planned for those who think they may tire … but it is all down stream with the current.


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:

  • Breakfast each morning during your stay at both properties
  • 2 course Dinner each night during your stay at both properties
