Well built and does give you an idea of what Hobart looked like. Given a map for you to compare and work out where the streets are. Did think it is overpriced though, they may get more people through the door if it was a bit cheaper for adults.

A wonderful look into the past , it was amazing to see the growth fro;m the early years , hard to think of cattle grazing in the middle of the town and all gravel roads with livestock wandering along them, A marvelous creation and well worth visiting

$60 for 4 adults and they did let the children (2) in for free,but honestly we were done in 10 minutes, and it is sooo over priced. It is worth seeing, but should not cost that much.

Fortunately, the day before we visited this attraction, we had walked around Hobart city to get the layout of the land. Having done this gave us a good appreciation of what this model village's history was all about. We could look at all the streets and know exactly where they were therefore making the experience more realistic. The challenge of... More

We had a look at the model town. It was very well done. Lots of information provided as well. I think I might have enjoyed it more if it wasn't $15 per adult to get in. I think if they lowered the price they would have a lot more visitors.

A detailed miniature model village showcasing life as it was in 1820s Hobart. Interesting and somewhat morbid. Had fun looking for the four hidden figures in the village, the lady killing a snake was the hardest to find.

We visited Old Hobart Town Model Village on 26/05/15. It is very different from most other miniature villages, being a recreation of Hobart in the Colonial era, and the layout follows the street grid of Hobart. The model buildings were excellent replicas, and the miniatures trees used on the layout were well chosen. However, many of the people figures tended... More

As a family we enjoyed this quaint replica of Old Hobart Town. How things have changed! The models are fantastic and so much detail. You are given a brief introduction about the model town and a map to follow with information about the various buildings and sections. There is a charge but well worth it. A souvenir shop. We spent... More

I loved holidaying in Hobart for the feeling of living in such a historic town but it wasn't until visiting Old Hobart Town in Richmond that I had a true sense of what it would have been like in the early days of the settlement. The craftsmanship was excellent and the attention to detail was second to none- both in... More

Loved this -bit hard to find when driving through Richmond - sign could be a bit more prominent. When walking around village keep an eye out for the three figures they ask you to spot we got two -the boy falling from the tree was a bit hard need to get down at childrens level to find it.
