We set off from Triabunna after catching up with a bit of research and emails. We arrived at Richmond (which is only 30 klms from Hobart) for early lunch … visiting a very nice bakery with lots of choices. John had to try out their curried scallop pie and although very nice he would have liked to see more scallops in the pie! We then had to try a cake and tart … YUM. The coffee was delicious too!!
We then went exploring and found the Richmond bridge … such a nice bridge to photograph!
We then visited 'Old Hobart Town' – a Historical Model Village. The village is unique within Australia and was built from original maps and plans from the Archives and Lands Department to ensure its historical accuracy and authenticity, depicting Hobart as it was in the 1820’s. Over 60 buildings and four hundred figurines tell the stories.
We then visited The Woodwork Store next door (oh what a mistake! Dollars wise that is!). It has the most beautiful Tasmanian woods there (Sassafras; Huon Pine; Myrtle; etc.) … made into beautiful things! We could have stayed for the whole afternoon just exploring and feeling and smelling the wood.
