Port Arthur Full Day Tour
From A$135 per adult
Discover Tasmania’s fascinating convict past at the World Heritage listed Port Arthur Historic Site and experience the beautiful coastline of the Tasman Peninsula. Departing Hobart, we’ll travel through the scenic Coal River Valley, a region renowned for its picturesque vineyards, farmlands and the settlement of Richmond. This quaint township is known as Australia’s best-preserved colonial village. Formally established in the 1820’s, here you can view the oldest Catholic Church in Australia, traverse the convict-made Richmond Bridge, and enjoy the tree-lined streets with their heritage listed buildings. Then, onward to the Tasman Peninsula.
At Pirate’s Bay Lookout we’ll take in the sweeping views of the rugged sea cliffs and coastline from Eaglehawk Neck to Cape Huay. Continuing onto the Peninsula, we’ll arrive at Port Arthur Historic Site where we’ll explore at our leisure the ruins and beautiful gardens of this UNESCO listed World Heritage open-air museum. You’ll also join a guided tour and harbour cruise (included) and discover the fascinating story of this convict settlement with its chilling realities for prisoners amid the preserved gaol ruins.
We’ll visit some of the magnificent features of Tasman National Park as we stop by the remarkable geological features of Tasman Arch, Devils Kitchen and the Blowhole. This truly spectacular coastline is created by the powerful seas of the Southern Ocean which collide with towering coastal cliffs, creating caves and rock arches with its cliff edges cloaked in native forest. We return to Hobart with profound appreciation for the wild scenery and fascinating insights into colonial life of the 19th and 20th centuries, having experienced a very special and unique part of Tasmania.
