Where’s Richmond?

Getting There

So you’re in for a short 25 minute drive from Hobart which is great, there’s also a local bus that run’s daily to and from Hobart.


Hopefully you can secure a spot camping on the orchard or farm, otherwise there are guesthouses and hotels in Richmond. I guess you could stay in Hobart and do the daily drive, could be an affordable option if you’re car pooling too!
