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 cobbles, handmade brick and mellow stone, cottages and manors. Wander streets lined with sandstone buildings that showcase the best of Tasmania's fine art and crafts and later on, taste some of the region's fine wines. The Richmond Gaol was built in 1825 as part of Governor Arthur's system of police districts. The building was added to in the 1830's 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. Next stop is Frogmore Creek Winery; set amidst 10-hectares of vines, Frogmore Creek Winery commands sweeping vineyard and water views, and has long produced some of Tasmania's finest and most collectable wines.
