    The bridge is the oldest existing stone arch bridge in Australia, built by convicts from Richmond Gaol between 1823 - 1825. The Triassic Sandstone was quarried from Butchers Hill. It is supported by six arches, four of which are in the river bed. There are various inscriptions in the stonework, one records the date the first stone was laid. Apparently the craftsmanship was so good that the bridge has survived with minimal maintenance. Nice lawned area adjacent.

    Small location but there is a fair bit packed into the area. You can hand feed some animals and there is enough to keep everyone interested. Feeding the lions was amazing and cost no extra. The birds, particularly the walk-through aviary just near the entrance was very cool. We loved watching the Tasmanian devils and wombats. Don't expect a place with a lot of polish, but it has got a lot of personality and the keepers are very friendly and entertaining.

    "It was amazing!" - my 10 year old daughter.

    The Gaol dates to 1825 when construction commenced using convict labour. The self-guided tour pamphlet that we received on admission included fascinating information on the layout and provisions of the original structure also details of the additions in 1833 and 1840. After transportation of convicts ceased in 1853, it became a watch-house and finally ceased operation in 1928. It was registered as a historic site in 1971. Many original items from the period are displayed in the various rooms, the whips, leg irons, handcuffs, etc. Great history and artefacts from a difficult period.

    Extremely friendly and welcoming staff. We were treated like friends and told all about the wines and the vineyard history. The wines are such a great tasting wine and have great names. BubbleDuck, Lucky duck are some specialties they do.

    We really looked forward to this and it delivered in every way. The tasting was informative and done in the old inn which was full of history. We then went to our table, bookings highly recommended, where we had idyllic views over the countryside and a delicious pizza lunch. The duck pizza in particular was a taste sensation.

    Thank you Maurice! What a pleasure to learn about your experience and love of your gorgeous vineyard. We loved trying some very special, and seldom found, wines from traditional grapes and we all thoroughly enjoyed your honest account of the hard work that goes into wine making on a small scale. Much love to Helen!

    Very interesting to see. If you have an idea of Hobart today before going it helps to visualise the change.

    Depending on you historical interest, probably take 45 mins minimum to take it in.

    Worth doing

    This is such a fantastic place! The owner is so lovely and passionate about the wonderful business she has built.
    The Pooseum is fun and informative for adults and kids alike. So many facts and cool and quirky things to see, do and learn; even the bathroom is fabulous.
    My 4 year old wanted to sit down after a while and the owner gave her books and puzzles to entertain her while we wandered.
    Funky, interactive computer software was a big winner too.
    Highly recommend!!

    We noticed the church on the hill behind us from the parking area near the bridge and decided to pay a visit. The church dates to 1836 with the foundation laid by Australia's first Catholic Archbishop, John Bede Polding. Completed and opened for worship in 1837, further additions were made in 1858 to cater for the growing Catholic community. The existing spire was installed in 1972. The building is Gothic style, buttressed walls constructed from sandstone and with corrugated iron roof and the copper clad spire. The church was open and I was able to have a look at the interior. A simple place of worship. The timber cross was carved by Manfred Weil in 1963, he lost his life in the 1967 Tasmanian bushfires. Nice stained glass windows. There are two inscribed marble tablets containing details of the church and pastors who have ministered there. The graveyard has headstones dating to the early 19th century. At the side of the church there is a memorial grave site to an infant boy who died in 1852.

    The strawberries are really tasty and normally really huge. The ice cream is fantastic and the coffee tasty. Theres often other tasty fruit on offer from other local farms. Its nice to be able to pick your own strawberries and know that they are fresh.

    Gayle and I had a wonderful time at Pressing Matters vineyard on Tea Tree Road Richmond - 4 Magnificent Rieslings that range from Bone Dry to lusciously sweet. You can really see and taste the versatility of this wonderful noble grape variety. And the there is the Pinot Noir!!!
    So good, don't believe me - Go and try them for yourself.

    You certainly must visit the richmond miniature village - it’s the old hobart model village ... it gives you an idea of what hobart used to be ... you will notice Davey Street wasn’t even there ...

    We saw so many National Trust properties in Tasmania and this may have been my favourite. That's mainly because it's so original and untouched, and is such a quirky house built on many different floors, it's like a tardis. They have carefully preserved everything including the fascinating doctor's surgery it was once used as, and the school. The history of the house is amazing. I really loved it :)

    Stopped at Tasmanian Craft Cellars on our way through Richmond towards Hobart. Excellent location in the Main Street, with a fantastic selection of Tasmanian craft brews and spirits and a lovely spot to have a drink. Highly recommended!
