Old Hobart Town Model Village

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Old Hobart Town is Australia’s only and Tasmania’s original historical model village which accurately replicates in miniature the life and history of Hobart in 1820.

Situated in the main street of Richmond (Tasmania’s finest Georgian village), this attraction has been built from original plans (over three years) and set out in streets. 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.

In all this incredible piece of art consists of over sixty replica model buildings, five to six hundred period figurines, convicts, gentlemen and even ladies of the night, over one hundred native myrtle bonsai trees and covers approximately two tennis courts. It encapsulates Sullivan’s Cove, Hunter Island, the Hobart Rivulet and main city centre.

Translations are available in Chinese, Japanese, French and German. Toilets are wheelchair friendly as this is an accessible site.
We also have a fully stocked souvenir shop with cheaper pricing.
