What to Expect

Learn about convict history at World Heritage listed Port Arthur!

Pickups from 7.30 am.

From Hobart, you'll take a short 25-minute drive to the historic village of Richmond. This spot boasts fine colonial buildings and the oldest bridge in Australia.

After looking around, continue on to the Tasman Peninsula, stopping to enjoy the view from Pirates Bay Lookout. Check out Doo Town, gaze out over Tasman Arch and see what’s cooking at the Devil’s Kitchen.

Then, walking on to Waterfall Bay you’ll enjoy spectacular views from the clifftops.

Next up is the highlight of the day, the opportunity to check out Tasmania’s convict heritage at Port Arthur. You have plenty of time to see the sights on a guided walking tour and harbour cruise. Hear about the harsh conditions that the earliest European residents of Tasmania experienced after being sent across the world.

After hearing all sorts of stories from the past and exploring the fascinating old buildings, it's time to head back to Hobart.
