A full day tour of Richmond, Bonorong & Mt Wellington with entry fees included.


Ideal for first time visitors to Tasmania and as a Cruise Ship Shore Excursion - an insight into Tasmania's history, wildlife and natural environment.

~ I'll introduce you to how and why Hobart was settled in the early 1800's; and by whom, including my ancestors who were amongst the first and early settlers to arrive in Van Diemen's Land (now Tasmania)

~ Gain an insight into convicts and early settlers as I take you on a guided walking tour around the historic village of Richmond and Australia's oldest convict built structures (some are still in use today for their original purpose)

~ Learn about Australian native animals including Tasmania's unique wildlife at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (including the Tasmanian Devil and my all-time favourite Wombats)

~ Enjoy panoramic views from the summit of Mt Wellington (conditions permitting); in the foothills of the mountain, stroll through a cool climate rainforest

~ See Battery Point and Salamanca precinct before returning to your hotel or cruise ship.

Itinerary

~ Travel along the Derwent River to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary to meet Tasmania's characterful native animals, including Tasmanian Devils. Learn about the incredible work of a dedicated team of wildlife keepers and volunteer wildlife carers through stories of endurance and survival of injured and orphaned native wildlife.

~ Take in the scenery of rolling hills of the Coal River Valley en route to Richmond Village; a village steeped in history and known for its elegant Georgian architecture and heritage buildings dating back to the 1820's. Step back in time on a guided walk around Australia's oldest convict built structures.

~ Travel to the summit of Mt Wellington through forests and windswept alpine habitat. As time permits, a short walk in a rainforest. Or you may visit Cascade Female Factory (additional cost applies) to learn about about female convicts.

A Recent Review of this tour

Tasmania is a wonderful place and Coreena made it shine at it's best! Even during the booking process we knew we would be in good hands. Coreena identified that 2 cruise ships would be in port during our visit and designed a tour that minimized our congestion at the key sights such as the Bonorong animal sanctuary and Mt. Wellington. Coreena's knowledge of the island and her contacts with shop owners and vendors made for a spectacular day!
