Richmond is a suburb of the city of Adelaide in southern Australia. It has an old town section, that contains a 19th century cottage which has not been connected to power or water, so visitors can see what life was like in the 18's. This suburb is well connected by road, and car hire in Richmond may be an option for those who want to see Adelaide and West Beach on the coast. Hiring a car in Richmond is a good way to see all the historical monuments that Tasmania has to offer, which contains a surprising amount of old prisons - so when you're there, behave.
Richmond is a largely residential town with a steadily growing population. There is a commercial area with shops and restaurants along Richmond Road, but for the best eateries then hiring a car in Richmond and heading for the hills is the best option, as there are a lot of cafes and restaurants in the surrounding area. Renting a car in Richmond will allow you to see Richmond Gaol, which is the oldest gaol in Australia that is still in working order. It was added to in 1835 in order to accommodate female prisoners, and makes a really interesting visit.
Richmond is the home of the Zoodoo Fun Park, which is one of the most unique animal parks in the world. Zoodoo is among the largest wildlife parks in the area, and is only 6km outside of Richmond, so it's easy to get to by car, and they have hundreds of different species of animals, including the rare and endangered Bengal Tiger, and the White Lion. Zoodoo is unique because it allows visitors to get up close with their favourite animals, with activities like Lion encounters. The park operates a safari bus tour, so you can sit back and take in the animals and the scenery.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
