Hobart Shore Excursion: Mt Wellington, Richmond and Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary

    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Mount Wellington, Pinnacle Road, Hobart, Tasmania Australia

    Visitors will be transported to the summit of Mt. Wellington. From here they will have a panoramic view of Hobart from a lofty 1270 m above sea level. Visitors will be left to their own devices at the top of the mountain.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Richmond Gaol, 37 Bathurst St, Richmond, Clarence, Tasmania 7025 Australia

    In Richmond, visitors will gain insight into the early convict days that preceded Port Arthur, with a stroll through the oldest goal in Tasmania. They will also see the oldest convict constructed sandstone bridge still in use in Australia and St. John’s Catholic Church, the oldest Catholic Church in Australia, then they can wander around, and explore on their own, this quaint little hamlet, with its numerous old and heritage listed buildings, arts and craft galleries, antique shops, etc. A visit to the Old Hobart Town model, set out as Hobart was in the 1820s, is well worth while.

    An allowance of 60 minutes has been scheduled for the stop in Richmond. This is enough time to grab a quick snack at the bakery, hotel or café, and explore what Richmond has to offer (on your own). We DO NOT recommend having a sit down meal in a cafe or restaurant, as this will eat up your hour allowance in itself.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, 593 Briggs Rd, Hobart, Tasmania 7030 Australia

    Customers will be dropped off at the entrance to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. Visitors will be given an introductory talk by one of the Bonorong Wildlife Keepers and advised how the sanctuary has been set up for the day for visitors. There will either be a 40 minute walking tour or, when there are large crowds (which is usual on Cruise Ship days) there will be keepers stationed at the three main animals of interest, to provide information on these animals. These are the Wombat, the Tasmanian Devils and the Koalas. Food for the Kangaroos will be provided (included in the entrance fee).

    Duration: 1 hour

    The first thing on this tour is a hair-raising drive up to the top of Mt. Wellington. The road is narrow so when two giant tour buses have to pass it is a slow process with a steep cliff on one side. Totally insane. They...More

    Disappointing tour. The equipment and venues were great. The tour guide/driver was not communicative. We would have liked to learn more about the area.

    This might have been an excellent tour with some better organization. Our driver, Rex, and guide, Sue, were both very good and might have provided a great experience but for problems apparently caused by the tour company owner. The tour company changed the morning meeting...More
