Port Arthur Convict Site, Isle of the Dead, Harbour Cruise, Tasman National Park, Free wi-fi onboard coach


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.
