About the region
New Norfolk is a bustling town on the River Derwent with a rich history, quality produce and pretty rural scenery. It's also the commercial and residential heart of the Derwent Valley.
The town is the third oldest settlement in Tasmania, established by evacuees relocated from Norfolk Island after the island prison was abandoned in 1807. It's historic past is evident in the many early buildings found in the town including one of Australia's oldest pubs and Australia's oldest Anglican church, St Matthews. It also has one of Australia's few traditional village squares.
