Step back in time and visit Australia's most delightful Georgian village. Established in 1825, five years before Port Arthur, Richmond is a genuine village of slate and cobblestones, handmade brick and mellow stone cottages and manors. Stroll along streets lined with sandstone buildings that showcase the best of Tasmania's fine art and crafts culture.

Visit Richmond Gaol (jail) built in 1825 as part of Governor Arthur's system of police districts. The building was enlarged to in the 1830s and was last used as a gaol in 1928. One of its infamous inmates was convict Ikey Solomon, said to be the model for Dickens' Fagin.

Your next stop is at the stunning Coal River Valley Winery; set amid acres of vines, with sweeping vineyard and water views. Enjoy a taste of Tasmania's cool-climate Coal River wines before you head back to the ship.
