Stop At: Mount Wellington, Pinnacle Road, Hobart, Tasmania Australia
Getting the chance for a great picture at the top of Mt Wellington is always a fantastic way to begin the day with the Mountain sitting at 1200 metres above the Hobart skyline. Did you know that Charles Darwin climbed the mountain while he was in Hobart Town? or that they used to take ice from the top to help make ice-cream for the Hobart confectioners? or that the Worlds Hardest Half Marathon runs up its slope? This is really one of the best ways to experience Hobart from 1200 metres above the waterline.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, 593 Briggs Rd, Brighton, Tasmania 7030 Australia
Moving onwards to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary which is a great place to experience a little bit of nature & native wildlife. You can get up close & personal with the Kangaroos, pat the Wombats, pat the Koala’s & of course the Tasmanian Devil (no devil patting unfortunately!!). Bonorong is a Sanctuary so they don’t operate as a zoo & they only now deal with local wildlife & also run the first Tasmanian Wildlife Hospital in Tasmania. They not only have these animals, but a wide range of other animals which are sure to engross & scratch the wildlife itch.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Richmond Bridge, Bridge Street, Richmond, Clarence, Tasmania 2004 Australia
We then make our way to Richmond Village, a fantastic local sandstone timestamp of early colonial life, especially when we consider that they have the oldest built convict bridge 1823, oldest currently operating Catholic Church 1836 & the oldest convict built Goal 1825 in Australia. The village itself comes alive on the weekends & is a haven for bric-brac shops, arts & crafts, gourmet delicatessens & of course the famous sweets & treats lolly shop. There are plenty of lunch options (at guests own expense) which your guide will be happy to discuss with you as you enter the village.
