HISTORIC RICHMOND

Step back in time with a visit to Richmond, an historic village nestled in the rolling hills of the Coal Valley. Tasmania's convict past seems very close with quaint Georgian cottages lining the streets and mellow sandstone glowing in the sun. An amazing number of beautiful old stone buildings constructed by convict labour have stood the test of time. Richmond hosts the oldest bridge in Australia and is a sight to behold within the lovely surrounds.
Exploring Richmond is a delight! Savour the locally produced fine wines, visit the art galleries and antique shops and be tempted by the bakery and lolly shops. Try the succulent oysters from the Pittwater estuary and the excellent locally grown produce at an array of quaint cafes, coffee shops and old sandstone pub.
