Your tour from Hobart starts as you depart the city for the drive to Bonorong Wildlife Park, catching views of city sights like Constitution Dock, the ABC Building (Hobart’s original sandstone railway station) and Derwent Entertainment Centre.
When you arrive at the wildlife park, which overlooks Brighton Valley, get excited for your up-close encounter with native Australian animals like kangaroos, echidnas, koalas, cockatoos and Tasmanian devils. A guided tour leads you through the habitats and provides information about the wildlife.
Then leave the park and make the drive to Richmond, one of Tasmania’s most historic towns. Admire the Georgian-era village with stone cottages and boutique shops, and check out the Richmond Bridge, one of the oldest bridges in Australia, dating back to the 1820s. As you visit the Richmond Gaol, learn a bit about the history of convict colonies in Australia. Your tour then ends with drop-off in Hobart.
