Prepare to admire the beauty of Hobart from the very top of Mt. Wellington, stop at Bonorong Wildlife Park to view the native animals and round out your day in the scenic village of Richmond on this private and exclusive excursion.
Be met directly at the port area by your local representative and set off travelling in luxury and comfort on your private adventure to see the old buildings of Hobart Town, with many being made of local sandstone and still standing to this day, dating from the early 1800's. As you climb to the top of Mt. Wellington, imagine what it would be like to run this path on foot. The Point to Pinnacle race is held on the road every year and is one of the worlds hardest half marathons. Hear about the local bush rangers, where the ice came from for Hobart ice creams, as well as the construction of the road itself. Once on top, take in the views of Hobart in an almost 360 view from the viewing platform. Read about Charles Darwin and his experiences as he did, indeed, climb the mountain.
Finish off the morning with a stop at Tasmania's best wildlife business, Bonorong Wildlife Park. Here you can get up-close and personal with the Tasmanian Devil as the handlers feed them, get to pat the wombats, koalas and of course feed the kangaroos. See just how friendly some of the local wildlife is, including their very talkative parrot, and learn all about the native animals from the professional and knowledgeable staff.
Step back into your transportation and relax while you travel next to the quaint little village of Richmond and discover the many convict built structures and houses. See the oldest built convict bridge in Australia, as well as the oldest Catholic Church. Take a bit of lunch from the highly awarded local Richmond Bakery or other cafes or maybe the traditional local pub (at your own expense and discretion). Pop your head into the local woodcraft shop, local souvenir stores or simply wander leisurely around the village. There are great photo opportunities around every corner, take the time to snap some Insta-worthy memories for your friends and family back home.
Finally, your day will come to an end as you travel back to the cruise terminal as you reminisce about this fantastic day out and about experiencing the best of what makes Hobart such a worthwhile destination. Book your private adventure today!
