Tassie Tour (Small Group): Hobart + Richmond

Salamanca Market
Mt Wellington
Richmond Tasmania
Meet with the driving guide and set off to Mt Wellington, the "first peak in the southern sky", overlooking the whole city. After descending the mountain, we pass by the oldest brewery in Australia, Cascade Brewery. From a distance, it looks like a huge French castle nestled at the foot of the mountain. Next stop we walk along the waterfront of Hobart to Salamanca Place, a row of sandstone masonry warehouses in the whaling era and a plaza built along the shore, now it is the best place for people to relax and entertain. The Salamanca Market, which opens every Saturday, makes it even more lively. Following lunch (at your own expense), head to Richmond. As one of the towns with the best preserved British architecture in the 19th century, walking in the town often gives people a sense of time and space: there are many British Georgian-style buildings along the main street of the town, across the Coal River. The Richmond Bridge in the River is the oldest stone bridge in Australia, and there is also the oldest surviving Catholic Church in Australia - St John's Church.
