New Norfolk is a pretty town on the banks of the Derwent River, surrounded by farmland and rich in colonial history. The town’s many early buildings include one of Australia’s oldest inns, the Bush Inn, and Australia’s oldest Anglican church, St Matthews (1823). The town also has one of Australia’s few traditional English village squares.
New Norfolk is the centre of Tasmania’s hop-growing industry and you’re bound to notice the old oast houses along the roadside that were used for drying hops in preparation for the brewing process. Although no longer used, their elegant shapes give the valley a deep sense of history.
New Norfolk is also a growing hub for antique hunters with eight antique specialists and the chance to find anything from Australian colonial furniture and Georgian silver to art deco treasures. Farther afield, New Norfolk is close to Mount Field National Park and Tasmania’s World Heritage Wilderness Area beyond. There’s a wide range of accommodation options available including grand old homestead, lodge and cottage accommodation.
New Norfolk is a 30-min drive (38 km) north-west of Hobart.
