We are flying into Hobart for a hectic 8 night statewide trip in February and by the time we get our hire car, it will be about 6pm. We will be staying in the Hobart area for a couple of days at the end of our trip so want to head off elsewhere for the first night in Tassie. We plan to go to Port Arthur the next day/night in any case but wondered whether to stay the first night in Richmond (is there a lot to see there?) or head south straight away? Also has anyone stayed at Steeles Island Retreat (Beach Cottage) which is apparently only 1/2 hour from Hobart - would a night there enroute to Port Arthur be a good alternative to Richmond?
