The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic Site, located 90 minutes’ drive from Hobart is Australia’s most intact and evocative convict site. There is a lot to see and do with more than 30 historic buildings and ruins to explore you’ll want to allow plenty of time.
Site entry valid for two consecutive days includes an introductory guided tour, harbour cruise, access to the Port Arthur Gallery and the extensive grounds and ruins. Additional tours of the Isle of the Dead and Point Puer can be included with the harbour cruise, or hear of the many escape attempts with the Escape from Port Arthur Tour. Visitors can cover the whole site with the Commandant’s Carriage Tour; an electric vehicle tour. For the brave, the ever-popular Ghost Tour runs after dark.
1830 Restaurant and Bar open from 4 pm offers views across the World Heritage Site and is a perfect place to relax after a day exploring. The Head Chef showcases local producers and their seasonal products.
Pre-visit bookings, travel advice and information on accommodation are available from the Port Arthur Booking Office at the Brooke Street Pier in Hobart. Tickets also available on arrival and via the website.
