Full description
Depart Hobart at 07:30 on a full-day tour exploring Tasmania’s ruthless convict past, and experience the rugged landscapes of the Tasman Peninsula along the way.

Start with a visit to the well-preserved colonial village of Richmond, where sights include Australia's oldest bridge still in use. Then, head south to the Tasman Peninsula and enter the Tasman National Park for some amazing views of the coastline and sea. Upon arrival at the Port Arthur Historic Site, learn the story of the convict settlement and the chilling realities of life as a prisoner amid the preserved jail ruins on a guided tour. Hear more about the penal colony's terrible past.

Take a cruise of the harbor to see the site from a different perspective, and get a look at the Isle of the Dead where those who died at the prison were laid to rest in mass graves. Return to Hobart, and benefit from the opportunity to stop by the remarkable geological formations of the Tasman Arch, Devil's Kitchen and Blow Hole. Get dropped off in Hobart at approximately 17:30 at the end of the tour services.
