Step inside Australia’s most intact and evocative convict site at World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic Site. Unravel the dark history of hardship and punishment as you wander through the ruins and preserved buildings on the grounds. Take part in a guided introductory walking tour and a short harbour cruise around the Isle of the Dead and Point Puer, the site of the English colonies first boy’s prison.

Get out the camera as we see the extraordinary rock formations on the dramatic coastline of the Tasman Peninsula. The natural beauty of this region will linger with you forever. We visit the famous Eaglehawk Neck, Blowhole, Tasman Arch and Devils Kitchen. Plenty of Instaworthy moments! The convict story continues when we head to the pretty historic village of Richmond. See the oldest convict-constructed sandstone bridge, browse through antique shops, and call in to the oldest Catholic Church in Australia. Oh, and there’s an old-school lolly shop for those with a sweet tooth.
