The first stop on your tour is the historic village of Richmond, reached by crossing Australia's oldest bridge which was built in 1823. Founded in 1824, the village itself boasts fine Georgian buildings made of native sandstone. Much of Richmond was built with conscripted convict labor. Today, Richmond is a popular destination home to many galleries, craft shops, cafés and restaurants. Free time is allowed here to browse the many shops or perhaps view St. John's Catholic Church or visit the historic convict Gaol. Admission is at the guest's own expense.
Proceeding on, you'll travel to Bonorong Wildlife Park. Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by knowledgeable park rangers who will provide you with a wealth of information about Tasmania's native wildlife. Wombats, koalas, and free-roaming kangaroos can all be found at this delightful wildlife park located near Brighton. The rangers will happily feed and hold many of the park's residents so that they may be photographed and petted by visitors to the Park. You'll certainly want to see the world-famous and rare Tasmanian Devil while you are here.
Following your visit at Bonorong Wildlife Park, your coach will bring you back to the pier in Hobart.
