Today we headed towards Richmond. The first stop was the Mt Pleasant Radio Telescope. Unfortunately the museum was closed, but we did have a walk around the site - there were some amazing views of the radio telescopes and the surrounding area.

Aftertre that we stopped by three wineries - Meadowbank, PuddleDuck and Pooley, as well as the Wicked cheese company.
Tasmania produces some great wines - but they're very expensive.
We finally stopped in Richmond for a picnic lunch and had a look around the town.

Richmond Historic Gaol
After we'd wandered around Richmond and the gaol, we headed over to the other side of Hobart to visit the old shot tower. I went for a walk up the tower and took some great photos down the inside of the tower.

After that it was back to town to droip the hire car off. Sarah headed up to the choir registration (Festival of Voices). I went to the voice of ideas where I saw Jeff Kennett (ex Premier of Victoria) and Paul Lennon (ex Premier of Tasmania) discussing Tasmania's future. I have to say Jeff Kennett was very well spoken and really had the audience in the palm of his hand.
