The creators of this model village spent years crafting this - laboring over every building, person, and tree. It is a remarkable labor of love. We really enjoyed walking through this and learning about old Hobart. We had fun finding the four hidden figures they...More

It's funny how Richmond in Tasmania reminded me of Bourton-on-the-Water in England, river, church, tourist trap, model village.... I'd say though that the Richmond village is more interesting. People of all ages were visiting. I was on a tour trip so couldn't stay for long,...More

A model of Hobart as presented in 1820 and although well laid out, it is just a large model. Interesting it is, and thankfully it is in the heart of the quaint village of Richmond, which provides an abundance of cafés and antique shops for...More

Lots of great history here and kids can have fun searching for hidden miniature people. Great to read all the signage about the history (my only suggestion would be an audio system added to listen to the history story). Great for all ages.

A quaint little model of Old Hobart Town in miniature . This model has been created with great attention to detail and is a good insight into how Hobart was in the days of early settlement .

Thanks for your time and energy into capturing the history of Hobart. You are sharing your dream with others. Teenage children love the experience... especially the challenge of looking for hidden items.... Especially the snail....

Located in the Main Street - this is a 1/16th replica of Hobart circa 1820. It's a self guided tour but there is a handy informative map and plenty of signage to keep you on track. This is wheelchair accessible and has plenty of spots...More

We paid $15 each for a look at the village and it was not - in our opinion - professionally finished. Had they not had a gimmick to find several figurines the time spent was a whole 10 minutes.

Interesting, well maintained, moderate sized model village replicating early Hobart. Good information on what you are seeing on the guide sheet that you are provided, helped by little signs helping you pick out the buildings. Nice touches of humour.
