Sleepy Woodbridge is one of the prettiest little towns on the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, easily reached via winding, country roads.
Overlooking Peppermint Bay and the northern end of Bruny Island, Woodbridge is a scenic hotspot for local produce and craft.
With water views on one side and rolling hills and small farms on the other, the area produces a bounty of apple and stone fruit varieties. The Channel – as the locals call it – is also well known for Atlantic salmon farms which can be visited on a selection of cruises.
From Hobart, catch a cruise down the Channel to Woodbridge for lunch at the multi-award winning Peppermint Bay restaurant complex, serving the freshest seafood and local produce.
Alternatively, dine at Pepperberries Garden Café at Birchs Bay and explore their garden sculpture trail.
The village has quaint bed and breakfast and guest house accommodation and is a lovely spot to stay while exploring the Huon Valley and D'Entrecasteaux Channel.
And for those interested in travelling to Bruny Island, the ferry departs from Kettering, just a few minutes drive north.
Woodbridge is a 35-min drive (35 km) south of Hobart.
