This miniature of Old Hobart Town is extremely detailed. The surrounding trees are native and have been bonsiad to fit in with the diorama.

It's as interesting for... More

This well presented model village gives great insight into the history of Hobart. You could spend quite a while here as you study all the models in detail. There are also some quite humorous scenes, so if you visit, look our for these.

So worth the entry fee. Make the time to read the handout and all the plaques too. What a work of art and the history....I have learnt more about the... More

We loved every aspect of this wonderful place..It was terrific to see an actual correct reconstruction of Old Hobart, and it was fun to try to find the hidden items. We have seen a couple of miniature villages during our travels but this one is the absolute best...Congratulations and well done to the gents who built this....you are indeed, remarkable......thanks...

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
