Our shuttle will take you 30 minutes outside of Hobart through the Coal River Valley to the beautiful historic town of Richmond where you will spend 2 hours exploring (unescorted) on your own. Here you will be able to gain an insight into the early convict days, that preceded Port Arthur, by taking a tour of the oldest goal in Tasmania. If you present your tour bus identity card at the goal you will receive a discount on the admission charge.
Take a stroll down to the river to see the oldest convict constructed sandstone bridge still in use in Australia and the oldest Catholic Church in Australia, St. John’s. Wander around and explore the quaint little hamlet of Richmond with its numerous heritage-listed buildings, galleries, antique shops, café and restaurants. Also popular is the Old Hobart Town Model Village a garden model display of Hobart depicting life there in the 1820s. Once again your tour bus identity card will get you a discount.
