A lively suburb situated on the River Derwent, New Norfolk is regarded as a must-see heritage destination in Tasmania.

The suburb is considered the third-oldest settlement in the state, and contains many historical buildings, including one of the oldest pubs in the country, as well as St Matthews, acknowledged as the oldest Anglican church in Australia. A traditional village square decorates the suburb. New Norfolk has also always been known for the cultivation of hops, and this industry continues to thrive to this day.
