Things to do

There is lots to do around our area and we are ideally situated for day trips to many of the main tourist destinations of Tasmania.

Keep in mind though that shops in Richmond are generally closing early and that it is difficult to buy food or go out for dinner late in the evening. But why not stock up with fresh sea food or nice cheese on the way and enjoy it in the cottage. The kitchen is very well equiped for any meal.
