The cruise ship day tour departs from Hobart to drive up through south Hobart towards the summit of Mt Wellington. Here you will enjoy breathtaking views of greater Hobart, the Tasman Bridge, the Derwent River, Bruny Island, the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and the Huon Valley. If weather doesn’t permit views from the summit the group has the option to visit a lower viewing point at Mt Nelson Signal Station which offers equally stunning views of Hobart, the Derwent River and Channel. You will have approximately 30 minutes to take in the view and take the perfect photograph.

Duration: 30 minutes

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

Next, you will travel through the beautiful Coal River Valley to the historic town of Richmond. Here you can gain more insight into the early convict days that preceded Port Arthur at the oldest goal in Tasmania and see the oldest convict constructed sandstone bridge still in use in Australia. Just nearby there is also the stunning sandstone St. John’s Catholic Church, the oldest Catholic Church in Australia. You will get the opportunity to wander around and explore the quaint little hamlet of Richmond with its numerous old and heritage-listed buildings, galleries, antique shops and visit Old Hobart Town, a garden model display of Hobart as it was in the 1820s.
You will have 60 minutes in Richmond, enough time to grab a quick snack at the bakery, hotel or café, We DO NOT recommend having a sit-down meal as you will miss out on exploring all that this beautiful town has to offer.
