Located just 36km north west of Hobart, the New Norfolk Caravan Park is situated on the banks of the beautiful Derwent River and makes an ideal base for exploring southern Tasmania.
The park has 40 Powered Sites – 28 are drive through sites; the other 12 are suited for motorhomes and small caravans. There are also four cabins and an onsite caravan.
There are also 25 unpowered site spaces in the park, all of which are grass with plenty of trees to provide shade.
There are barbeque, camp kitchen and full laundry facilities. The cabins have television, electric blankets, and tea and coffee making facilities.
The Town of New Norfolk was settled in 1808 and spreads over both sides of the Derwent River with the main shopping district a five minute walk from the Caravan Park. The town is home to many antique stores as well as the oldest continuously licensed Hotel in Australia – The Bush Inn.
From the New Norfolk Caravan Park there is a popular walking track that follows the Derwent River through the wetlands and to Tynwald Park where you can see wildlife such as wild ducks and platypus. The River itself is a great fishing spot.
