Bonorong Wildlife Park and Richmond Afternoon Tour from Hobart
From US$73.26
Overview
Visit two area highlights—Bonorong Wildlife Park and the town of Richmond—on this half-day tour from Hobart, which includes all transportation. Make the most of your time in Hobart by combining local history and wildlife, with views of Tasmanian devils at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and lessons on Tasmania's convict history in Richmond.
What to Expect

Your tour starts with pickup from your central Hobart hotel. On the way out of Hobart, your guide navigates you past sights such as Derwent Entertainment Centre, the ABC Building, and Constitution Dock.

Arrive at the Bonorong Wildlife Park, which provides photo-worthy views over Brighton Valley, and embark on a guided tour through the park's habitats. Learn about the native animals such as Tasmanian devils, cockatoos, echidnas, and kangaroos that make their home in the park.

On the drive to Richmond, listen to background information on the town meant to enrich your understanding of the area. The historic town features Georgian-era architecture, one of Australia's oldest bridges, and Richmond Gaol. Learn about the history of convicts in Australia and the town's role in that history.

The tour ends at Brooke Street Pier, from which you make your own way to your next destination or hotel.
