Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, Richmond Bridge and the Wicked Cheese Factory

While day two was spent in and around the city of Hobart day three saw us heading out into the country side north of the city. The girls really wanted to see a Tasmanian Devil and a quick bit of research over breakfast led us to the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary.

As you can read above we had a really good time. Here are a few photos from that morning.

The Tasmanian devils weren't though as the handlers had some tasty baby chickens for them to chew on.

You could get up close and have a pat if you liked. I was amazed at how rough their fur was.

There were Kangaroos everywhere which you were allowed to feed and they were very friendly. Quite a few had baby joeys as well.

After we had run out of Kangaroo feed and Seerung had told off some women for making a huge mess as they were cleaning their feet in the bathroom sinks it was time to go and find some lunch. When researching where to see Tasmanian Devils that morning I came across some information about a small independent cheese maker that was taking the cheese world by storm. It is called the Wicked Cheese Factory and was only a 20 minute drive away.

All I wanted to do was sleep after that meal but we pushed on into the town of Richmond just a few kilometres up the road from the factory. I wanted to see Australia’s oldest bridge that is still in use.

The bridge spans the Coal River

It was built with convict labor and began construction in 1821 and was completed in 1823.

By now we were all pretty tired so we headed back to our lovely house by the sea to rest up and plan our next adventure.

  2. mmm… cheese! It all looks fantastic. I’d love to see that bridge – convict history is be so interesting; have you come across a lot of historical sights from the day of Van Demon’s Land?
