Most interesting part in the Richmond trip, the town is perfectly designed and modelled, some details are interesting and very real. considering it's one man job and the research behind the work, surely will give 5 star and will revisit every time I come to Tasmania again :)

A great way to get an understanding of what Hobart and Australia was like in the early 1800's. The creator of this village also had a great sense of humor so it is important to take the time to look at all the characters. It is a lot of fun and very educational

Spend a day at Richmond and make sure you visit the model village of old Hobart. Our kids loved seeing how Hobart was originally laid out.

Took our 9 year old here and he enjoyed himself for about 5 seconds and then was ready to go. I can't believe how expensive entry was. Agreed someone put a lot of time and effort into making it but they did that a long time ago and have surely paid that back. They gave us a kids activity where... More

Headed straight to the model village on our arrival in Richmond, $14 entry fee and it was worth it to see the amount of detail put into the historical depiction of Hobart in the 1820's. Over 60 buildings and 400 figurines tell the stories of the Tassie pioneers. A must see.

We have just got back from 2 weeks in Hobart. We did a day in Richmond early in the trip and didn't have time to see this attraction that day, but we weren't all that fussed. At the end of the trip, we were looking for something relaxing for the last afternoon, so we went and had lunch at the... More
