Norfolk Bay Convict Station

Bed and Breakfast

The Norfolk Bay Convict Station is a convict built home in Taranna, ten km north of Port Arthur. This historic home has five bedrooms, all with bathroom, television, and refrigerator. Enjoy our hearty continental breakfast of home made bread, jams and local produce. You can indulge and relax in our guest massage chair, or enjoy a glass of Tasmanian wine or beer in front of the wood fire in the cosy sitting room, in the garden or on the verandas overlooking tranquil Norfolk Bay. There is a comprehensive library, and we offer business facilities and internet access for our guests.
Norfolk Bay Convict Station was built to service Australia’s first convict railway station and had a pivotal part of the Tasman Peninsula’s history. The train had the dubious reputation of being the only human powered one in Australia, and carried goods from Norfolk Bay to Port Arthur convict prison – seven kilometres away. The Tasman Peninsula is famous for its 300 metre (1,000 foot) sea cliffs, walking tracks, boat trips, diving, and local vineyards. There are number of good local restaurants, and you can kayak, play golf, or try fishing from the pier.
