Richmond is a picture-perfect town that tells the story of an early Australian village and is the ideal place to learn about Tasmania’s rich colonial heritage. The town has more than 50 Georgian buildings, many now offering high-quality accommodation.
Richmond is home to Australia’s oldest bridge, built by convict labour between 1823 and 1825, and Richmond Gaol, Australia’s oldest gaol, built in 1825. It’s also home to Australia’s oldest remaining Catholic Church, St Johns, built in 1836.
To get the most out of Richmond, try wandering its streets. The town has attracted artists and crafts people for generations and you’ll find their work in the town’s galleries and cafes.
You can also visit nearby ZooDoo Wildlife Park (do the free bus tour for a real surprise), test your sense of direction at Richmond Maze and Tea Rooms, walk around a model of the original 1820s Hobart Town at the Hobart Town Historical Village or simply sit by the river and enjoy a picnic while feeding the ducks.
If travelling from Hobart to the East Coast or Tasman Peninsula, consider visiting Richmond on the way.
Richmond is a 30-min drive (24 km) from Hobart.
