Port Arthur Historic Site

The Port Arthur Historic Site is only a one and a half hour drive from Hobart along the Convict Trail Touring Route. Don't be put off by the trip from Hobart to Sorell, as on reaching the Tasman Peninsula the drive takes in some of the most breathtaking seascapes in Australia, winds through a classic pastoral farmland setting dotted with the heritage buildings and remnants of a convict past that Tasmania is so famous/infamous for.

Allow yourself plenty of time for your journey to the Port Arthur Historic Site, as there are many short side trips that are well worth the extra effort, Pirates Bay, Devils Kitchen and the Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park are some of the more well known but they are only the obvious gems in a vast treasure trove of attractions both on and off the beaten track. For the most extensive presentation of attractions and activities on the Tasman Peninssula visit
