  • All Day Trip: Departs Hobart at 7-7:30am, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday (+Saturday from 01 Dec - 31 Jan)
  • Duration: 11 Hours (7am - 6pm).

Discover the fascinating convict history at Port Arthur Historic Site, deemed an inescapable prison. Explore the spectacular scenery of the Tasman National Park along the Waterfall Bay clifftop walk, experience a Tassie Devil feeding and a visit to Richmond historic village.

During this busy and fast-paced active day tour we combine two of Tasmania's iconic experiences - a Tassie Devil feeding and time to explore the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic Site. Beyond Port Arthur we visit Richmond historic village and walk the stunning Waterfall Bay cliff top track.

Highlights

  • Port Arthur Historic Site (2.5 hours)
  • Tasmanian Devil Unzoo (1 hour)
  • Tasmanian Devil feeding
  • Birds of the Bush show
  • Waterfall Bay Cliff Top Walk (easy grade)
  • Tasman National Park – Devils Kitchen, Tasman Arch
  • Pirates Bay Lookout
  • Eaglehawk Neck & The “Dogline”
  • Richmond village and historic bridge

Today is action packed and fast paced. We make an early start from Hobart and drive directly to the stunning Tasman Peninsula. This area has amazing history, fascinating stories and spectacular scenery. It is also home to Australia’s highest sea cliffs. We enjoy the panoramic views of the area from Pirates Bay Lookout which provides a great vantage of the surrounding area. Passing through Eaglehawk Neck and "The Dogline" our Tour Guides will share with you some fascinating stories and history of the area.

Then we begin one of Tasmania’s “Great Short Walks”. This is a short but spectacular track along the Waterfall Bay Clifftop. The walk is around 45 minutes, undulating and categorised as an easy walk. The track concludes at the remarkable rock formations of Tasman Arch and Devil’s Kitchen.

Next stop is the Tasmanian Devil Unzoo. We arrive here for all the action of a Tasmanian Devil Feeding. Watch the snarling, fighting and bone crushing in a spectacle of devilish behaviour during the feeding. Hand feed the wallabies and walk among the local fauna and flora in the charming “Unzoo” setting.

Continuing our journey, we arrive at Port Arthur Historic Site. As we enter the Port Arthur Historic Site, there is a wealth of information and history to take in and to explore. Your entry includes a complimentary Harbour Cruise around the Isle of the Dead, ‘The Port Arthur Experience' a podcast that provides a fascinating introduction to the site, and complimentary site talks throughout the day led by Port Arthur’s expert guides. Discover the grim and violent history of the early Australian Penal system and get a sense of the isolation experienced by the convicts in this “inescapable prison”. With around 2.5 hours here, you have time to walk among the main penitentiary; see the solitary confinement cells and many more buildings in this World Heritage open air museum.

On our return to Hobart, we travel via the historic township of Richmond. Arriving late the in the afternoon, you will have time to meander the streets, stop for a coffee, visit the Lolly Shop, Chocolatier and walk across Australia’s oldest bridge still in use – a convict built sand-stone bridge, reported to be haunted!

We arrive back into Hobart around 6.00pm.
