    Bicheno to Richmond

    April 26, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Started the day with a 7.7km walk along the foreshore to the ‘blowhole’ which was not really active. Oh well, one of those days. Wonderful scenery though.
    We talked about having another scallop pie as they are yum. Reached Swansea and found a takeaway/restaurant selling them. Jeanette ordered 2, price $33.80, she paid and with a puzzled look questioned the assistant who said the pies were full of scallops, we waited and watched. Our pies were not from a pie warmer but were made from scratch. 10 mins later we had them to take away, in a box baked in a tinfoil base. $16.90 each, they had better be good. 12 scallops and scrummy pastry later they are the best on earth and worth every penny.
    Carried on to Richmond, found our quirky accommodation and walked to the oldest span bridge in Australia, absolutely beautiful. Visited the historic Gaol then wine time. Last meal together at the historic pub as we go home tomorrow. So sad.

    Richmond, about 25km north east of Hobart, is arguably Tasmania's premier town and is undeniably picturesque. The town's most photographed landmark is the Richmond bridge, was built by convicts in the 1820's and is the oldest bridge in Australia. The much visited Richmond gaol is the oldest gaol in Australia, and tourists frequent tours there to receive some insight to the hardship and brutality of convict life. The oldest remaining Catholic church, St John's, built in 1836, is found in the town and still holds regular service for parishioners.
    To Angela's delight we found the Richmond footy ground, not quite the MCG but nevertheless it was a chance to take a pic with the AFL grand final winners book .

    Die Stadt Richmond diente als Zwischenstation zwischen Hobart und Port Arthur, aus diesem Grund gab es eine grosszahl an Pub's. In Richmond steht die älteste Brücke von Australien, welche im Jahre 1823 erbaut wurde. Die Stadt wird in seinem ursprünglichen Charme erhalten, alle neuen Gebäude sind im alten Style zu erbauen, damit diese so authentisch wie möglich bleibt.Read more

    October 21, 2015 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    V roce 1823 zacali trestanci, dopraveni z kolonii do Tasmanie, pracovat na stavbe kamenneho mostu, ktery je dnes nejstarsim dosud uzivanym mostem v Australii. Krome toho je Richmond, lezici asi 25 km od Hobartu, hezkym mesteckem se spoustou historickych (19. stoleti) budov a nejstarsim rimsko-katolickym kostelem. Na vezeni jsem se podivala jen zvenku (odpoledne jedeme do Port Arthuru, 2 zalare denne by mozna byly trochu moc :-/), v obchode se sladkostmi koupila Tonymu lekorici (no fuj!) a ve Wicked Cheese Factory, tovarne na syry se specialni mistnosti pro zrani syrovych bochniku, poridila chilli cedar k vecernimu pikniku.Read more
