Add To Plan

Experience the beauty and flavors of Tasmania during this tour of historic Hobart, and an award-winning winery in the scenic countryside.

Depart the pier for the drive to Richmond. Along the way, you will cross the Derwent River via Australia's oldest bridge before arriving at this picture-postcard town. One of Australia's most important historic towns, Richmond features landmark buildings constructed by convict labor under appallingly harsh conditions. Its well-preserved cottages, homes, shops and pub reflect life in an era long since passed. During your visit, some free time will be made to explore the area.

Next, you will continue to the Coal Valley for a visit to Puddle Duck Winery, one of Tasmania's finest wineries. En route, you will pass by many of Hobart's picturesque and elegant homes, and quaint cottages. Upon arrival at the winery, your welcoming hosts will provide you with an informative commentary and wine-tasting (actual winery visited may be substituted).

Leaving the winery, you will proceed for a visit to one of Tasmania's most renowned historic buildings, Runnymede Estate. This gracious old home, nestled amidst charming grounds, was built in 1840 for Tasmania's first lawyer, Robert Pitcairns. Upon arrival, you will take a guided tour through its elegant rooms and learn about the fascinating history of this house and its many residents.

Your tour will conclude with a tour of historic Hobart before returning to the pier and ship.
