Woodbridge

A haven for food, wine and delicious cheese

Woodbridge is a classic Tasmanian destination – it has a little something of all that makes Tasmania special. Enjoy fine food and wine at Peppermint Bay Restaurant, head up the road and meet the cheese maker at Grandvewe Sheep Cheesery or sit back and take in views across the D’Entrecasteaux Channel from one of the lush hillsides. This calm southern town, around 35 minutes’ drive from Hobart enjoys the relaxed personality Tasmanians are known for.

Back in 1792, Woodbridge was first explored by Bruni D’Entrecasteaux and later settled in the 1800s by whalers, sealers and timber cutters. Just north is Oyster Cove, an area where Flinders Island Aboriginals were transferred to in 1847. As such, there’s plenty of history to absorb in Woodbridge and surrounds.

Enjoy a catamaran journey from the city to Peppermint Bay or make your way down the Channel by car. There are plenty of roadside stalls offering apples, stone fruit, cherries and other in-season treats along the way.

Overlooking the northern end of Bruny and with views across the Channel, Woodbridge is an ideal base to explore the south. It won’t take long to realise why the locals, in particular a large community of artists, call this town home. Some travel to Salamanca Market each Saturday to sell their wares, while others sell locally at the market in town.

Be sure to try some locally smoked salmon and if time allows, take the ferry to Bruny Island which departs just a few kilometres away in Kettering.
