As visitors walk the streets of old Hobart, the informative signage tells a story of how and why Hobart was so important to the Australian colonies, it really captures interest and makes for a unique and fascinating tour.

There are photos of today’s scenes in Hobart within the model making comparisons easy, and there is a game for the children to play – it keeps adults amused as well.
