Why do Tourists & Locals Love Richmond?

Richmond was one of the most influential areas in the foundation of Tasmania. Most of the village was constructed by convicts serving time at Richmond Gaol between the 1820’s and 1840’s.

At one point Richmond was the third largest town in Tasmania, a major supplier of Australia’s wheat and a key part of the convict system. Nowadays, it’s one of the most popular tourist destinations  in Tasmania, with the most photographed bridge in Australia after the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It’s also home to many of Tasmania’s best winemakers and gourmet food producers.

Stroll the streets and you’ll see many remaining buildings and structures from this pivotal moment in time. You’ll be surprised just how much of this village has been preserved. Stand on the green riverbanks of the Coal River and admire the Richmond Bridge, with St John’s Church in the background.

There are many things to do in Richmond for all ages. Have a picnic on the riverbank and feed the ducks. Explore the quiet and peaceful streets which are lined with character and charm. Have a relaxing lunch at one the many cafes and restaurants. On your way home, drive through the coal valley and explore the many local Richmond wineries, which produce award-winning cool climate wines.
