Great history lesson

This is not just a miniature model village but a historic lesson in the early settlement of Australia. Well worth the visit.

Honestly we stopped by the gift shop to buy a couple of tea towels for my Australian Tea Towel Collection (I'm making curtains from them). Spent almost an hour chatting with the manager / groundsman, a lovely chap from Oxford. He was fantastic and a highlight of our trip to Tasmania! Learned a huge amount about Hobart even though we...

Puts a visit to Hobart in historical perspective. Gorgeously detailed models and loads of entertaining mini-scenes. The trees are all bonsai! Been a few times and see something new every time.

After travelling with my husband around Tasmania we had visited many sites and areas of rich history. On the end of our Holiday in the coal river wine region we went to visit this amazing little place "Old Hobart Town Model Village". This blew our minds, giving us a genuine visual look at things we had read about. It allows... More

When I got to old Hobart model I was abit unsure of what we were going to see. Soon as we went through the door it was like a time warp everything about it was fantastic.

This place is very interesting and the attention to detail is amazing, but it took us half an hour tops to see it all and that was because we were looking at everything trying to find the special things to get a sticker for our five year old; otherwise you could be in and out in 15 minutes. There were... More

Well what a quaint little gem this is. The attention to detail @1/16 is amazing. Seeing every little thing needs a patient and keen outlook. There is a reward for finding the four items they require you find. This little blogger has a sticker to say I did. SO PROUD. History and fun combined.

This is a lovely well built replica, but when it took about 15 mins to walk through, the admission price of $15 is very overpriced.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Old Hobart Town Model Village. It was fun finding the four challenges and comparing the model to new. The place is overdue for an update though. A rid of hedge and tree pruning and redoing the map/photos would make this a much better experience.
