Day Tour in Mt. Field, Mt. Wellington, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and Richmond
An excellent tour. All aspects of the tour were enjoyable and as this is a small group tour we were all able to do each section at our own pace. Jarrod, our guide, was always ready to help and provided an informative and interesting commentary throughout. The mini bus was immaculate and spacious. We highly recommend this tour.

This was a great tour, just alittle...

Bonorong Wildlife Park and Richmond Afternoon Tour from Hobart
This was a great tour, just alittle rushed. The Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary is small, but so informative and wonderful. This wildlife sancutary, cares deeply for all the animals that are brought here. You will love seeing all the Aussie animals. The tour of Richmond was great too, but didn't have much more than 45 minutes here. Not enough time, but well worth it anyway. Seeing the Richmond Jail was very interesting as well. I do recommend going on this tour.
