About this property


Ideally situated on a small farm near the historic village of Richmond, this family-friendly accommodation is truly a smart choice for a comfortable stay. Taras Richmond Farmstay is close to many notable tourist attractions including Old Hobart Town, Zoo Doo, the Coal Valley, and the Richmond Gaol. It is also a 30-minute drive from Hobart and only a 20-minute drive from Hobart Airport. Guests can explore the farm by the daily animal feeding tour and admire the 360-degree views over the paddocks to Mount Wellington and the surrounding area. During the Christmas season, you can pick some fresh berries by yourself. Other times of the year, you may see sheep work, tree planting, or hay making. This lovely property provides fully self-contained facilities to make your stay as comfortable as possible. After a long day of exploring, guests can simply sit back, relax, and enjoy the peaceful and restful atmosphere. Guests can easily take a drive through Hobart, beautiful Mt. Wellington, or visit the Salmon Ponds, Tahune Airwalk, Russell Falls, or Port Arthur. Taras Richmond Farmstay is committed to making an unforgettable stay for you.

Best stay in Tasmania
We love the whole experience of staying at Tara's farm. In spite of the rain, we had a great stay, relaxing in the lovely apartment and getting to know the farm animals.Breakfast was fantastic with freshly baked bread , freshly laid eggs and home made jams every morning. Tara was extremely helpful in directing us to nearby attractions and food places. We were so touch when she drove a distance to send us the power adaptor which was left behind after we have checked out. All in all, we highly recommend this lovely place. Thanks Tara !

Awesome home stay!
Thank you Tara and Daniel for the warm hospitality! We loved the breakfast that Tara prepared. The place is awesome! Very clean! Love the cottage feel and it makes us feel like at home! Love the animals(although I am scared of them) blackie and chink are very friendly dogs. I overcome the fear of dogs and manage to touch blackie when he comes near me! We will definitely be back soon! Tara and blackie, we miss you!

Wonderful , Hearty , Lovely , Clean room
1. Cleanliness 2. Friendly host 3. Superb quality room
Tara is a kind and thoughtful person. She manages her farmstay as a high standard environmental friendly hub. She serves us healthy, hygienic fresh food from her farm. She provides us useful information about the farm works. For travellers , the farm stay could be a recharge after a life long hard work. Especially if you come here with your family , the tame and friendly farm animals are children's good friends. For myself I would like to stay here next time for longer period because it feel like home.

Best stay!
Spacious, clean, great breakfast
Loved everything about our stay. Tara was welcoming and showed us around the farm. We stayed at the Wellington studio. It was clean, spacious and had a well equipped kitchen. More importantly, the studio was warm! (we visited in winter) Was great getting to meet Blackie the golden retriever and Charlie the sheep! Will definitely book a trip back here if we were to visit Tasmania! Look forward to seeing the new apartment additions soon (:

I was very surprised to find this modern, clean and wonderful place to stay. It was one of the best self-contained accommodations I've ever stayed. The breakfast was impressive too. The beddings, interior decorations and the view from the room were great.
