Woodbridge is in the heart of the Derwent Valley. The river has great trout fishing, and rafting and jet boating are available. Beautiful farmlands and orchards make for spectaculatr drives, and the wonders of Mt Field National Park, Russell Falls, Something Wild Wildlife Sanctuary and the Tall Trees Reserve, site of the tallest hardwood trees in the world, are a short drive away. Vineyards with tastings, breweries making local farm-brewed beers, and cherry orchards offer gastronomic interest, and antique shops are a welcome diversion. Spectacular scenery, Australian history, wildlife and wilderness and food and wine from the freshest air and cleanest water on the planet make this valley one of the few unspoiled places left to enjoy.
