New Norfolk Attractions
The Derwent Valley is genuinely fascinating. The richness and variety of the historic buildings of New Norfolk and Hamilton, the glorious river drives, the old oast houses and the gentle undulations of the countryside on either side of the Derwent River make this one of the most attractive areas in the whole of Tasmania.
Mercifully the area has not been over-developed and it is still possible to have a drink in the 1815 Bush Inn, sleep luxuriously in the convict built 1825 Woodbridge on the Derwent, dine at historic Tynwald House, wander through the old Oast House, visit the historic Willow Court which predates Port Arthur, feed the fish at the Salmon Ponds, walk along the banks of the river past the convict built remains of the first bridge over the Derwent, or inspect the beautiful stained glass windows in Tasmania's oldest church, The Anglican Church of St Matthew.
New Norfolk is known as a Mecca for antiques collectors. Browse the many and varied antique and curios shops where you are sure to find something to excite every collector.
