Port Arthur Historic Site

Visit World Heritage listed Port Arthur for a fascinating glimpse into history. Start with a spectacular drive along the coastline towards the wild and scenic Tasman Peninsula. Stop at Pirates Bay for commanding views of Eaglehawk Neck and the stunning east coast. Port Arthur is Australia’s most intact and evocative historic prison, with many ruined and restored buildings. Take a guided walking tour, step inside eerie cells, wander through the Penitentiary, learn about convict discipline and hear tales of the hardships suffered. The reconstructed Government Gardens (established in 1858), offer a glimpse of life on the other side of the bars. If time allows take a harbour cruise on the M.V. Marana.
