Olde Time Portraits in Richmond, south-east Tasmania, specialises in colonial-style costume portraits. Richmond is a 30-minute drive (27 kilometres) north-east of Hobart and 20 minutes from Hobart airport.
At Olde Time Portraits you can choose from a number of colonial-style costumes for your portrait. Be transformed into a 19th century lady or gentleman, wear the uniform of an officer of the colony or carry the chains of a convict, among many others. Children’s costumes are also available and you can choose from a sepia-toned portrait or a ‘Wanted’ or ‘Reward’ poster with your image. Gift vouchers, postcards, calendars and gift cards are also available.
Richmond is famous for its convict history and Georgian architecture. You can explore the village’s colonial buildings, including the Richmond Gaol and Richmond Bridge—Australia’s oldest. Browse through galleries and shops, relax in a café or restaurant or even take a horse-drawn carriage ride through town. Richmond is located in the Coal River Valley, one of Tasmania’s wine-producing areas. You can take a drive through the countryside and taste some of Tasmania’s fine cool climate wines at the cellar door.
