Best of both worlds in Woodbridge

Shared by |tags,

There are few Tasmanian towns that combine better ‘a rural feeling and water views’ than Woodbridge.

Located at the northern end of Bruny Island and overlooking Peppermint Bay and the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, Woodbridge is the jewel in the Huon Valley's crown.

Whether you are planning a week away or a quick day trip, there is plenty to do in this small town.

Take some time to visit Woodbridge's many artists and craftspeople at venues including Woodbridge Hill Hand-weaving Studio and Gardens, and Regnans Art Gallery.

Nestled amongst other small Tasmanian towns on the Channel, Woodbridge is a standout for dining and produce.

The Woodbridge Summer Market gives visitors the opportunity to sample locally-grown apples and stone fruit, while Hartzview Vineyard offers the finest local wines and ports. Visitors can also sample up to 15 different types of cheese at Grandvewe Sheep Cheesery.

Enjoy the view of Bruny Island while dining alfresco style at The Stackings restaurant, which utilises the freshest local seafood and produce (especially from its onsite garden) to create its innovative menu.

Alternatively, dine at Fleurty’s café named after a convict sawmiller from the early 1800’s. Native peppers, cut flowers and essential oils are grown on the property and they specialise in freshly baked savoury pastries, local wine and delicious cakes. That’s worth stopping for!

No matter what time of the year you plan your trip, Woodbridge has something to offer every type of visitor, and there is good accommodation in the area.

It is a short 40 minutes up into Hobart.
