This attraction is great for all the family. It is a reconstruction of Hobart during 1820's faithfully made from maps of the time. The accompanying guide plan gets you to compare with modern Hobart & it's amazing to see the difference. There are many quirky...More

I visited the place today. It’s very small and there are many mosquitoes. It is over-priced at A$15 per pax. Definitely over-rated. If you have time to spare, eat an ice cream instead of visiting that place.

What a labor of love!! If I had a class of students, we'd visit here for a visual connection on early Hobart Town History. Take your time and imagine as you walk around this amazing recreation.

This was an excellent few hours as we visually got taken back to the beginning of old Hobart town. Love how they have hidden figures for the kids to discover. The detail is amazing . A must see for all to visit.

Cannot recommend this place enough. $15 entry fee and you are given a map to wander around the small village and take a glimpse into the past of Hobart. The detail and skill required to build this town is incredible. It really is an amazing...More

We enjoyed our afternoon visit to the Old Hobart Town model village despite it being a very hot afternoon. There are umbrellas for guests to use as the exhibit is primarily in direct sunlight. Each of the buildings and the little figurines were so painstakingly...More
