Richmond Bridge

Reviewed By 9waynep - Toowoomba, Australia

We went to Richmond to have a look around. This is a great place with lots of early century buildings from the convict era.
We checked out many of the buildings and had a lookaround at themoment famous Richmond Bridge. What a beautiful structure. The stone work is brilliant and setting is is very panoramic.
Took some lovely photos.

Puddleduck Vineyard

Puddleduck Vineyard is a small family Tasmanian Vineyard owned by Darren and Jackie Brown. We welcome you to taste our beautiful cool climate wine at our friendly cellar door, which is open from 10 - 5 daily. Whilst here you will probably meet Polly our wine dog, or Lucky or cellar door duck. Feel free to have a "Reverse BYO" (you supply the picnic food and we supply the beverages) to enjoy in our outdoor areas. We look forward to seeing you soon.

We went for wine tasting, but unfortunately the wine served was very little to appreciate it. -the owner explained about the wine in details. The vineyard has a beautiful surroundings with ducks and Guinea fowl.
As it is a family owned vineyard , the family works extremely hard and most things are done manually.

The Wicked Cheese Co.

Reviewed By Barry T - Brisbane, Australia

We stopped in and stocked up on some lovely Tassie cheeses and other yummy food items. They provided tasting opportunities and for just $5 they provide a coolie-bag and ice-packs so we could transport our goodies home. They had a very broad range of boutique and regular cheese varieties and their prices were reasonable. We also enjoyed a lovely coffee and across the board the staff were very friendly and helpful. Pop in if driving down to Richmond, and that is certainly worth a visit as well, only about 20/25 minutes from downtown Hobart.

Richmond Gaol

Reviewed By D_Walton2013 - Newcastle, Australia

We spent a very interesting hour going through the goal and would recommend it especially as a learning experience for children. We learned a lot too, and it’s good to be reminded of how things were here. There are toilets and a small gift shop also.p

Zoodoo Zoo

Reviewed By funkyhughes23 - Melbourne, Australia

We'd visited East Coast Natureworld a few days prior and left very disappointed. This was a nice surprise! Lots of animals and you are able to get close and viewing for even younger kids is easy due to the enclosure design. Quite a range of native and exotic animals and great information provided through staff and interactive displays. You are able to hand feed some of the animals as well which is a great treat for the kids. Animals all seemed well cared for. Small-ish area so you are not walking for great distances.

Old Hobart Town Model Village

Reviewed By Peter_4825 - Melbourne, Australia

This attraction is great for all the family. It is a reconstruction of Hobart during 1820's faithfully made from maps of the time. The accompanying guide plan gets you to compare with modern Hobart & it's amazing to see the difference. There are many quirky people stories depicted in the models & some are just such fun. A great little walk around (& umbrellas provided if it's raining).

St John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church

Reviewed By Ronald L - Longmont, United States

Richmond is a beautiful, quaint little village with the old church, stone bridge, scale replica of original Hobart, and miscellaneous shops. Visited here as part of Tours Around Tasmania. St John’s Catholic Church, built in 1835, is the oldest Catholic Church in
Australia and it must be one of the most beautiful with the old wooden pews and ceiling.

Pooley Wines

Pooley Wines is Tasmania's only 3rd generation family wine company. The Pooley family produce award-winning Riesling, Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Sparkling, and Cabernet Merlot blends from their two vineyards in the Coal Valley, southern Tasmania. The Pooley Wines cellar door is located at the heritage-listed Belmont property (circa 1830s) in Richmond. Open 7 days, 10am-5pm (closed Easter Friday, Christmas Day and Boxing Day).

Reviewed By tonysR1257FR - Melbourne, Australia

Right from the beginning we felt welcome and comfortable at Pooley Wines. The staff acknowledged us and were attentive right from the start at this amazing old sandstone house. The cellar door is in the old stables out back and has a genuinely rustic feel about the place, walking through the side door the space opened up to a mixed crowd enjoying food, wine and conversation taking in a very pleasant vista across the valley. There is a great grassy area with bean bags for an even more relaxed approach and the kids to burn off some energy. The wines are extremely good and the tasting staff very knowledgeable about this family run winery. There is a wood fired oven out the back which was churning out some great pizzas suitable for all ages and food types and plenty of parking. We will be back to Pooley Wines next time in Tas, we had a fantastic afternoon with friends catching up and enjoying good food and great wine, really life doesn't get any better.

Pressing Matters

Reviewed By Bartlettforpresident - Perth, Australia

We were travelling to Tasmania to do some sightseeing and wine tasting and through reviews of wines we wanted to go to Pressing Matters. We emailed and were pleased to be told they were open through appointment. When we arrived we were met by Michelle...MoreThank you for your review. Glad you had such a great experience. Hope we can do it again sometime, and I will get Paul to mop the cellar door out next time :)
