Hobart: Mt Wellington, Bonorong & Richmond Shore Excursion
- Watch the Tasmanian Devil being fed at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary
- Take in panoramic views of Hobart Town up and down the Derwent River from Mt Wellington
- Explore the colonial and convict heritage of Richmond Village
- Take a photo next to the oldest convict built bridge in Australia
Hear about the local bushrangers, where the ice came from for Hobart ice-creams, as well as the construction of the road itself. Take in the views of Hobart in an almost 360-degree view from the top. Read about Darwin's experiences as he did indeed climb the mountain.
Finish off the morning with a stop at Tasmania's best wildlife business at Bonorong Wildlife Park. Here you can get up close and personal with the Tasmanian Devil as the handlers feed them, get to pat their wombats, koalas, and of course feed the kangaroos. See how friendly some of the local wildlife is, including their very talkative parrot.
Then, travel to the quaint little village of Richmond to discover its many convict-built structures and houses. See the oldest built convict bridge in Australia, as well as the oldest Catholic Church. Take a bit of lunch from the highly awarded local Richmond bakery or maybe the traditional local pub. Pop your head into the local woodcraft shop or just wander around the village with great photo opportunities along the way.
Finally, depart your coach back at the cruise terminal in time for the boat to depart Hobart Port after a fantastic day out & about experiencing the best of what makes Hobart such a worthwhile destination to visit on any cruise ship tour.
