Small-Group Mt Wellington, Bonorong Wildlife Park and Richmond Tour from Hobart

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Mount Wellington, Pinnacle Road, Hobart, Tasmania Australia

    After pickup from Hobart you will drive to the summit of Mt Wellington where you can enjoy the breathtaking views of greater Hobart and the Tasman Bridge, weather permitting. Should weather preclude the running of the trip up the mountain, you will be given the option to visit the Mt. Nelson Signal Station.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, 593 Briggs Rd, Hobart, Tasmania 7030 Australia

    The iconic Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. Here you can get up front and personal with Tasmanian wildlife, including the Tassie Devil, Forest Kangaroos, Wallabies, Wombats, Koalas and many more. Have a conversation with Fred, the Sulphur-crested cockatoo, who is over 103 years old! We will schedule our arrival time to arrive in time for a 40 minute guided information session by one of the wildlife keepers. A time allowance of 60 minutes has been scheduled for Bonorong, but this may be extended depending on the circumstances on the day.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Richmond Gaol, 37 Bathurst St, Richmond, Clarence, Tasmania 7025 Australia

    After departing Hobart, you will travel to Richmond, where you will gain more insight into the early convict days that preceded Port Arthur, with a stroll through the oldest goal in Tasmania. You will also see the oldest convict constructed sandstone bridge still in use in Australia and St. John’s Catholic Church, the oldest Catholic Church in Australia, then you can wander around, and explore on your own, this quaint little hamlet, with its numerous old and heritage listed buildings, arts and craft galleries, antique shops, etc. A visit to the Old Hobart Town model, set out as Hobart was in the 1820s, is well worth while.

    An allowance of 60 minutes has been scheduled for the stop in Richmond. This is enough time to grab a quick snack at the bakery, hotel or café, and explore what Richmond has to offer (on your own). We DO NOT recommend having a sit down meal in a cafe or restaurant, as this will eat up your hour allowance in itself.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Excellent tour. Garret made it worth all the while. Was in Australia for 11 days (Brisbane, Hobart, Sydney and Melbourne). This was by far the very best tour! He might even throw in an extra stop if the group is quick/nice enough!

    Because of this trip I have become enamoured with Tasmania. The driver/guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about Hobart & Mt Wellington. The wildlife park visit was fantastic. I had never before experienced the hand feeding of kangeroo - so memorable.
