We stayed three nights at Woodbridge on the Derwent. The hosts were so welcoming, and full of helpful advice about the area. On our first evening we had dinner there. The food was beautiful, and sitting at the window we had a gorgeous view of the river. It was very romantic, especially since we were there on our wedding anniversary.
We loved the personal touches, such as having our names on the door of our room. We also loved the sauna and spa, especially since no one else was using it at the time!
Just up the road is The Bush Inn, which is one of the oldest pubs in Australia.
An incredible coincidence was that I was looking for some relatives from the First Fleet who were buried nearby, and John directed me to the exact obscure cemetery where they were buried. Very much appreciated! I will definitely come back again.
