Sitting tranquilly amidst English oaks and gardens, Port Arthur is a harsh contrast to the beauty of the Tasman Peninsula.

Rich in visual history, the Port Arthur Historic Site evokes a powerful sense of our past convict era and of early Australian settlement heritage. And on this tour, with an included walk on the Isle of the Dead, we gain a more powerful insight into the personal life and struggles of the convicts.

Your journey to Port Arthur departs Hobart and crossing the Derwent River. Leaving behind the city, pass ever changing landscape as you skirt the ocean and impressive rugged coastline.  At Port Arthur, take advantage of a streamlined entry, with tickets organised prior to arrival. Listen to the included site talks by expert guides around the main site and Isle of the Dead. Spend time exploring the multitude of restored and ruined buildings and learn of the site’s dramatic history. Free optional Remarkable Caves tour for those interested, ask your Driver/Guide. On our way back to Hobart we stop for a visit at the Chocolate Foundry.
