New Norfolk is a town on the Derwent River, in the south-east of Tasmania, Australia. At the 2006 census, New Norfolk had a population of 5,230.

It is 32 km north-west of Hobart on the Lyell Highway and has all modern facilities while preserving its pioneer heritage. Two fine examples are Tasmanias' oldest Anglican church Saint Matthews, built in 1823, and Australia's oldest hotel The Bush Inn, trading continuously in the same building since 1815 using the same licence of 29 September 1825. Many private homes from the 1820s and later have also survived.
