This is a lovely well built replica, but when it took about 15 mins to walk through, the admission price of $15 is very overpriced.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Old Hobart Town Model Village. It was fun finding the four challenges and comparing the model to new. The place is overdue for an update though. A rid of hedge and tree pruning and redoing the map/photos would make this a much better experience.

Was interesting and cute and well done but I thought it was a bit over priced since its quite small. I wouldn't recommend it because it didn't seem worth the price since we were only in there for half an hour.

An excellent tourist venue just 30 minutes from Hobart. Owner gave a comprehensive explanation of the site, and advice on how to get the most from the experience. Wonderful upkeep of an immaculate attraction, with the bonsai treatment of the shrubs and small trees a bonus. Attention to historical detail and beautifully carved buildings, people and animals is an amazing... More

This is a work of art and love and a must see to see what Hobart Town looked like in the 1820's. The work put into this over three years is a great achievement.

Opened in 1991 this displays shows how Hobart looked in the early 1800's so much detail and to 1/16th scale. Really enjoyed visiting here so much TLC has been put into this local Richmond attraction.

Beautiful and well structured models, price is fairly reasonable if you're a concession holder. You can complete the track fairly quickly though. Great customer service and knowledgeable
