Luxury Tasmanian Experiences – Outdoors & Adventure.


The Woodbridge is in the Derwent Valley, a nature lover’s paradise. Mt Field National Park, Russell Falls and Styx (tall trees) Forests for bushwalking, Maydena (downhill) Bike Park, kayaking and rafting.

Helicopter and seaplane experiences will take you further afield for trips to the highland wilderness, Maria Island and Tasmanian Peninsula.


Luxury Tasmanian Experiences – Food & Wine.


The Derwent Valley is emerging as one of Australia’s best foodie destinations. The Agrarian Kitchen has developed an international reputation for its paddock-to-plate restaurant and cooking school. Our valley rebounded for its fresh produce and all ingredients are either grown onsite or sourced locally.

The Derwent Valley is the home of highly acclaimed vineyards, Stefano Lubiano, Meadow Bank and Derwent Estate. And Moorilla and Pooleys are a mere 20 minutes from The Woodbridge. Recent years have seen an explosion of new distilleries and breweries, all capitalising on the sweet, pure water that is abundant in the valley. Complementing this are rum, whiskey, gin and vodka distilleries, breweries for artisan ales and beer, and now a cider house. The valley has it all.


Luxury Tasmanian Experiences – History & Culture.


There was no wharves at Hobart at the time of first settlement in Tasmania. Ships plied up the Derwent and dropped anchor at the top of the tide, and there Elizabeth Town (later New Norfolk) was established. New Norfolk with its garrison and historic pubs, churches and houses, predates Port Arthurs and Hobart. The very first (wooden) bridge across the Derwent River was built beside The Woodbridge, and hence the name. And the historic Tollhouse for the bridge still stands across the river from The Woodbridge.

Nearby Salmon Ponds was the site of a successful breeding programme of trout fingerlings brought out from Scotland in the 1830’s. These established trout industries throughout Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and South America.

Woodbridge also offers a great choice of guided Experience and Adventure add-ons, many of which are Private and Exclusive to our guests.
