Begin your trip travelling to the foothills of Mt. Wellington. Pass through the Victoria and Constitution Docks and see the city's original railway stations at the ABC buildings. Travel along the Brooker Highway, spot Tasmania's largest mult--purpose arena and the Derwent Entertainment Centre.
Continue to the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. Situated in the gorgeous Brighton Valley, this place is a haven for Tasmania's native animals. A wildlife sanctuary run by a passionate team of people, it is also a successful breeding site for the unique and often misunderstood Tasmanian Devil (traditional indigenous name in Palawa Kani language is "purinina"). Be amazed and learn, taking part in an up-close encounter with "The Devil" and other Tasmanian and Australian native animals. Stroll the grounds of the sanctuary and hand feed the animals that roam free. Learn about the habits and habitats of animals including koalas, quolls, wombats, wallabies and kangaroos. Even enjoy a rare encounter with a friendly Tasmanian devil.
Complete the day with a stop at Richmond village. Built in the 1820s as a convict station linking Hobart with Port Arthur. Be amazed by its Georgian-style bridge, gaol (prison), mansions, small cottages and surroundings.
