Richmond, located about 25 kilometers north of Hobart, drives for about 30 minutes, while we have more than 80 kilometers from Fieldhill National Park to Richmond. The tour guide has been driving for nearly an hour and a half. Richmond is one of the oldest towns in Tasmania. It still has more than a hundred years of ancient buildings. It is said that there are more than fifty 19th century buildings, some of which have now become hotels and provide high-quality accommodation. The town of Richmond was an important military transit station in the 1820s and a prison station connecting Hobart and Port Arthur. To understand Tasmania's history, the town of Richmond is the best choice. The best way to get a better understanding of Richmond is to go shopping on foot. In this small town with less than 1,000 people, I wandered around as if I had met the nostalgic world in my dream last night. Apart from the oldest stone bridge in Australia (1823), the oldest Catholic church (1836) and the oldest prison (1825), Richmond Town is also famous for its Georgian architecture. In these stone buildings, there are now coffee shops, pastry shops, toy shops, gift shops, art galleries and museums. Generations of artists and craftsmen have been attracted to the town, and their works can be found everywhere in art galleries and coffee shops. We ate Mango Ice Cream at Sweets Treats Chocolate Shop in town, and Apple Pie at Richmond Bakery's Cake Shop, and then we shuttled around various local stores to experience the wonder of time reversal.

Richmond is only 40 minutes'drive from Hobart, the capital of Tasmania. It is an old and quiet town. No pedestrians were seen on the street except tourists. The tour guide said that the first stone bridge in Australia was built in 1823. It is said that it was built for transportation, all of which were completed by prisoners. The first church in Australia was also built here in 1836. It is said that it was built to impress prisoners. The town is very small, the most prominent scenery is the bridge and church, the bridge is simple, church English style, in the green trees and grass set off, beautiful and dazzling.
RICHMODE, a town about 30-45 minutes north of Hobart with a population of less than 1,000, is one of the oldest towns in Tasmania. It still retains many ancient buildings with a history of more than 100 years and has a unique nostalgic style. The most famous one is RICHMODE BRIDGE (Richmond Stone Bridge). It is said that it has a long history. The town is small and can be visited in half an hour. It's quiet like a paradise.
This is a small town near Hobart. It's about forty-five minutes'drive. It is said that a hundred years ago many prisoners built it. When it's desolate here. But a bridge was built by hand. The bridge is still in use. As smart as a new pin. There's a lot of grass beside it. There are also many ducks and pigeons. Look from a distance. The rocky bridge is still very beautiful. There is also a small church nearby. This church is said to be the oldest church in Australia. Inside the wooden roof. But it looks very strong. The whole town is small but has many specialty shops and restaurants.
Richmond is 27 kilometers northeast of Hobart. It's only 30 minutes'drive from downtown. The historic Richmond stretches across the Coal River, 27 kilometers northeast of Hobart. Although only 800 residents, only a few hundred metres from entrance to exit, walk around town for less than an hour, thanks to more than 50 19th-century buildings (most of which are now hotels and provide high-quality accommodation), as well as the oldest churches and existing Australian churches. Stone Bridge, which makes it an undisputed historical town in Tasmania, has the reputation of "Little Bridge, Running Church Home". Richmond Bridge is the pride of the town. Stone Bridge was built in 1832 by prisoners and is the oldest bridge still in use. The lawn beside the bridge is green, ducks play in groups around the river bank, while under the bridge is a quiet paradise where the river runs. 500 meters away from the ancient bridge, it is the first Roman Catholic Church in Australia. St. John s Catholic Church was built in 1836. There is also an ice-cream shop in the town. Have you seen the "heartbeat again" starring Yang Henlin and Pig? In the play, Yang Xiaoyu is sitting in this position and eating ice-cream by himself.
The town is not far from the city. It's about half an hour's drive. The town is small but has a hundred years of history. That stone bridge made it very famous here. On the green lawn beside the bridge, people came to take pictures with them, and the birds in the water came to make a scene of harmony and nature. Not far from Stone Bridge is Australia's first Catholic Church, which can be seen by the way. When tired of playing, we can find a cafe in the town to sit down and eat something to enjoy the street scenery. It ends a perfect day.
Richmond Town is a super-comfortable town, and its shops are also very distinctive. In particular, there is a small shop selling wooden handicraft products, small, handmade inside things are very beautiful. The church is also exquisite, beside the lake, a few wild ducks are playing, let us these big city people can not help but lament the fast pace and pressure of urban life!
