This a miniature version of Hobart's early settlement. It is fun for adults and children and gives one a good idea of the early settlement...warts and all.

We visited Richmond....and Old Hobart Town Village and enjoyed all we saw. It was a wonderful Village and enjoyed Richmond and all sights ......The old buildings and the old Richmond Bridge built by the convicts is a must to see.......The Kings AAT tours look after you and show Tasmania to its very best.......full of information......We loved Richmond and Tassie.....

It was wonderful meeting one of the men who actually created this miniature town!! We spent 45 mins as a family in Hobart Town and it cost $32 from memory (less than a visit to a cafe) and my 10 and 12 year olds still rate it as one of their favourite places in Tassie. We ensured they took their... More

We enjoyed visiting the model village, it's not very big but there is so much detail, it is beautifully done. We will happily visit again if we happen to visit Richmond again.

A fascinating and beautifully built recreation of Old Hobart Town. Historically interesting, and great to make up your own stories about what the people living there are doing as you tour the site. Yes it's small, but perfectly formed - and you can't help but be grateful to the owner/builder who has made it his life's work to recreate history... More

Awesome attraction, have been there before. Never see everything in one trip ,love seeing how Hobart would have looked back in the ally settlement , love how Hobart have retained a lot of the older buildings and kept their upkeep.

After coming from an impressive entrance I was disappointed, entry fee was way too high for what was offered. Come away thinking maybe it's because I'm not local yet it is a tourist attraction. Limited information.

Interesting spot but not a lot in the way of an attraction. There is minimal information on old Hobart town and unlike other sights there's no spoken accounts piped in or great information pamphlets with the info. As an adult I could see the changes from old to new and could see that kids would have fun trying to find... More
