Port Arthur & The Tasman Peninsula


Travel along the scenic Tasman Peninsula, abundant with spectacular coastal views, to Port Arthur, where you'll enjoy a guided exploration of its infamous penal settlement and historic sites, and participate in a narrated harbour cruise. Arguably one of Australia’s most interesting historical sites Port Arthur, was from the 1830’s through to the 1870’s home to more than 12,000 convicts at the Penal Colony. Every building has a story to tell and the site’s guides and Interpretation Centre vividly recreate the history and day to day life of this unique, historic settlement. Join your experienced guide and explore the grounds, then board the M.V. Marana for a harbour cruise that takes you past the island cemetery, Isle of the Dead and Point Puer Boys prison. After lunch, we’ll stop for a photo opportunity of one of several striking geologic formations.
