Where are we going today?

Old Hobart Town is a unique multi award winning model village depicting life in Hobart as it was in the 1820’s.

Individually handcrafted with passion by Andrew and John Quick over a three year period, the authentic model village has been reconstructed from original plans and it gives a unique glimpse into the tough life of Australia’s convict past.

Set in stunning landscaped surroundings in the historic town of Richmond only minutes from Hobart, it forms the perfect stopover for visitors to Port Arthur and Tasmania’s East Coast.
