Tour Description

Port Arthur Historic Site showcases Tasmania’s harsh and violent convict history in this World Heritage Listed open air museum.  The beauty of the area contrasts starkly with the brutality of its history.  This is an experience not to be missed.

We have packed this itinerary with highlights from the stunning Tasman Peninsula and Richmond Village a lovely historic township that was a critical link in the development of the convict history of Tasmania along with around 4 hours to explore the grounds of Port Arthur.

The Tasman Peninsula is home to Australia’s highest sea cliffs and some amazing coastal scenery. We experience the drama and magnificence of these with a visit to Pirate’s Bay Lookout, Tasman Arch and Devils Kitchen before beginning a short, easy but incredibly stunning cliff top walk via Paterson’s Arch to Waterfall Bay.  The perfect introduction and an invigorating way to begin our action packed day.

Once at Port Arthur Historic Site you will have around 4 hours to explore the site.  Your entrance here includes a walking tour conducted by the specialised Port Arthur Tour Guides and a harbour cruise around the Isle of the Dead full of interesting commentary and information.  Wander the extensive grounds, stand amongst the ruins of the solitary confinement cells and wonder at just how life survived amongst such ruthlessness.

On the journey back to Hobart, we stop to sample the local hand-made chocolate at the quirky Federation Chocolate Factory.  We stop at the beautiful Historic Township of Richmond Village with time to meander the streets and walk across the hand-built, reportedly haunted, convict bridge.  Last but not least, before we re-enter Hobart we stop for a great vista of the city and beyond at a local lookout.
