It was a joy to spend the day with Ruth after our flight into Hobart. She covered so much ground from the city and its history, to lunch, to fabulous views off Mount Wellington, and ending with shopping in Richmond at shops she knew to be good. I would highly recommend having Ruth show you around Hobart and the surrounding area.
