Richmond Village

History, fine wines & other temptations​​

Welcome to our historic village in the valley

Richmond is one of Tasmania's most popular destinations, steeped in history, family-friendly and a hub for food and wine lovers. Nestled in the heart of the Coal River Valley, Richmond was established as an important military staging post and convict station linking Hobart with Port Arthur. The village is famous for its elegant Georgian architecture, with beautiful heritage buildings dating back as early as the 1820's now housing galleries, tea shops, craft boutiques and museums.

Conveniently located just 20 minutes drive from the Hobart CBD and 15 minutes from Hobart airport, Richmond is an ideal base from which to explore southern Tasmania, including the food, wine and heritage of the beautiful Coal River Valley.

​​Tassielink Transit offers a regular bus service connecting Richmond and the valley with Hobart
