Be Amazed by Tasmania: Richmond
First on the agenda in Richmond was the town’s maze (keeping the juniors happy right from the outset). With mobile phone on hand in case of emergencies, the kids tackled the two wooden structures with gusto.
While the youngsters were occupied, we did a little browsing in the main street. The Coal River Valley region is known for fine wineries, and also produces some of Tasmania’s fresh produce (like berries).
