A model village of Hobart as it was when it was established, with great signboards and pamphlets. It looks very different to what it looks like now, and some comparison photos are provided on the back of the handout that you are lent at the entrance. The people in the model village are all individually made and unique; there are... More

... unfortunately it's a bit over priced. The workmanship is very intricate and brilliantly done. So much time and effort. But I still think the price could be lowered. I would think the entry cost would have well and truly covered the workmanship hours by now. You have to know what Hobart is like now to appreciate it, too. Perhaps... More

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.
